Lily Keefauver


Hi! I’m Lily and I’m a sophomore double majoring in Urban Studies and Planning and Sociology with a concentration in science/medicine. Some topics I’m interested in are social work, homelessness, and sustainable development. I really enjoyed USP 3-The city and social theory, and I’m hoping to take USP 144: Environmental and Preventive Health Issues. A fun fact about me is that I love scuba diving but am scared of waves.
