I go here in the evenings, and am happy to see that money is being spent on what is genuinely a diamond in the rough.
The faculty is fantastic, but parking is a nightmare. And the support staff tends to treat every student like a 19-year-old flunkie. (I am going to have plenty of negative things to say about the incompetent Registrar—Victor Ashrafi league incompentency–but I will save that for some other day.)
What would it hurt, to offer the three major far East Asian languages? Do two semesters beginning, and two semesters intermediate. They offer Italian, but how many Italian companies are doing business with New Jersey? In contrast, Japan and the Asian tigers do a ton of business through the Port.
Yet their cultures are still relegated to the “exotic”, and very few American-born businessmen know even a few words of Chinese, Japanese or Korean.
It would be good if RVCC expanded the course offerings, as it expands the plant and parking.
