JET Kudos

Congratulations to Marissa Lubong and Ryan Buyco, graduating seniors and Japanese majors, for being accepted into the Japanese Exchange and Teaching (JET) programme. Spencer Barnes, another graduating senior and Japanese major--incredibly, double majoring as a student from GW's School of Business--was selected as an alternate. If past history is any indication, there is a good chance he will get in too. I'd congratulate him too, but I don't want to jinx him.

Unfortunately, not all of our students who applied got in, as this program has become highly competitive recently, particularly with the dearth of job opportunities these days. But each was outstanding and qualified, and I have no doubt that they will find other opportunities soon. So keep pluggin' away. Your time will come.
