Caitlin Millar Hammaren, who was born on May 4, 1987, and was from Westtown, N.Y., had a way of making everyone feel as if they were her best friend. Her smile was contagious under any circumstances.
A sophomore double majoring in international studies and French with a minor in leadership and social change, she was events chair for her sorority, Kappa Kappa Gamma.
Her role as a resident advisor in the Residential Leadership Community was her passion and she took care of each of her residents as if they were her own children. As a result, she was inducted into the National Residence Hall Honorary, an organization that recognizes the top 1 percent of residence hall leaders.
Caitlin dedicated her time outside her studies to many activities close to her heart such as riding horses, singing, and playing violin.
