Marcus Connor

“I am currently Active Duty in the U.S. Army and I decided to go back to school in order to utilize the Army’s Active Duty Green-To-Gold Option in a pursuit to obtain a Master’s Degree and Commission as a U.S. Army Officer upon graduating. My decision to return to school was a desire to pursue a better understanding of the American legal system. I had already obtained a bachelor’s degree in Political Science and have always been fascinated by the law. I truly wanted to improve my analytical skills in order to plan my future career aspirations. I was ready to embark on the adventure. I can honestly say I was not scared of returning to school; however, I was very anxious in regard to adapting from everyday military life to a classroom setting after a seven-year absence. I was most excited for the opportunity to pursue a degree that will improve my legalese as well as lead to career opportunities that will solidify my family’s future.”

– Marcus Connor (M.Jur. ’19)
