A New Milford father and son are among the nearly 1,300 people who attended a summer orientation session at Western Connecticut State University in July.  Doug and Brandon Muckerman both attended as incoming students.  University officials say 11-percent of West Conn's incoming undergraduates are nontraditional students like Doug, who is 48-years old and works at Cartus.  He recently completed an associate degree at Naugatuck Valley Community College and transferred his credits to West Conn to pursue a CPA designation in accounting.  18-year old Brandon, who was a third baseman on New Milford High School’s baseball team, is interested in studying Criminal Justice.  The elder Muckerman committed to West Conn first, saying he didn't want to leave school with a lot of debt.  They don't expect to have any classes in common, but if they see each other on campus, the pair plan to say hi and keep moving.
