Caroline Lawless Social Work Major

"My dad, a U.S. Navy Commander, came home last year from his second extended tour in Iraq. Like many people who have served in a war zone, adjusting to civilian life was a challenge. He's such a wonderful dad and a truly special person, and I am so happy he is back with us. Watching my father work to overcome some obstacles has made me think about what I want to do with my life.

"There are so many great people that need just a little help to get back on track, and I know I can help make a difference in their lives. That's why I'm pursuing a career in Social Work."
