Otterbein, Jen (Class of 1997)

Jen Otterbein (’97) “After teaching Spanish for seven years in high school in New Jersey, I quit my job this summer to go back to school.  I am currently getting my Masters of Divinity at Alliance Theological Seminary in Nyack, NY.  One of the families that is in my program spent a summer teaching English at Gerzen University in St. Petersburg where I studied Russian in 1995!  They are the first people I have ever met that were at the same school in Russia!  So we enjoy talking about the school and St. Petersburg.  They are hoping to move to Russia permanently after graduation.  Who knows if I will find myself there again when I graduate…” (update: 2008)
“Studying Russian at William & Mary was one of the best decisions I have ever made, and has truly benefitted me in everything I have done.  Thanks so much for all that you do!  Encourage your students to keep going!!” (update: 2006)

The company took quite a bit of time to talk about the hardware of the new devices, focusing on the improvements that have been made both internally and externally.
