Caitlin Lafferty

Major/Year: Masters of Social Work; second year (full-time program)

What are some of your favorite things about your major? My favorite things about the Masters of Social Work program are my awesome cohort, our approachable and warm faculty and staff and the widespread enthusiasm for creating change, bettering our communities and empowering each other and those around us.

What are some of your favorite pastimes/hobbies outside of school? Outside of school, I can usually be found at a live music show, a social justice-advocating event, a local brewery or out on the water. I had a great time advocating for equality at the Women’s March in Wilmington. I'm at almost every show at Greenfield Lake Amphitheater. And when the boat isn’t broken, I’m out on the water!
