Senior Conor Murtagh went through a slight culture shock going from life in the armed forces to Seton Hall. In order to better adjust to life on campus, he reached out to others on campus who might understand his difficulties.
“I went from being one of the ‘young guys’ to the oldest student in almost all of my classes,” Murtagh said.
Murtagh was an Aircraft Maintainer from 2007-2011, completed a tour in Afghanistan in 2010, and majors in secondary education and English at Seton Hall. He is also one of the founding members of the Seton Hall’s new Student Veteran Association.
