Why did you choose to attend the School of Allied Health Professions at Loma Linda University?
Loma Linda University has made a name for itself in the Occupational Therapy professional world for producing confident and experienced students. I chose Occupational Therapy because of its opportunities to express my creativity and to work with people who I can help lead a quality life. Not only is this job personally rewarding it is in very high demand in the work force with many financial benefits. I am so happy that I chose Loma Linda, not only does it provide a quality education, it aims to create a campus environment that fellowships together, plays together, worships together and exercises together. It is not hard to feel a sense of belonging to the Loma Linda University Campus family.
