Gordon Jeff Love
Dr. Gordon Jeff Love is professor of German and Russian. In addition to speaking English, French, German, and Russian fluently, he was a corporate lawyer who gave up law to pursue the study of Russian literature at Yale. He is incredibly dedicated, and is best known for his awesome sense of humor. But don't let his goofy nature fool you, he has high expectations for his students. His German class is tough, but you'll learn a lot.
