U.S. arms won't help Ukraine

14 hrs ago Full story: The Winnipeg Free Press 10

Recently, I wrote from Mariupol, Ukraine, that it would be a mistake for President Vladimir Putin to attack this once Russia-friendly city. The United States may soon commit a similar error, if it makes a show of arming Ukraine.

Has anyone noticed the decline of SWCC in the past couple of years? For some reason things have changed there, and it isn't for the better.

When did it become SWCC? It has always been SVCC. You might be able to call it SWVCC, but SWCC is not proper.

It is now SWCC. There have been some other changes there also. And most have not been good.

Like it is converting to an online college. But I guess some people like that. But some must not because numbers are way down. Something has changed there. For some reason the mindset is different.

There are alot of on campus or off campus classes as well as online. The realistics are a 2 year degree wont get you very far these days, alot of people who plan to do something in life either use them as a starting point or skip them and just go to a 4 year institution. Enrollment is also probably down because drug addicts dont plan to do anything with their life other than get high.

The new president should have left the name, SVCC, alone! It is not SWCC!

I believe the new dog in charge just wants to leave his scent on everything, whether it smells good or not.

The reason the name has been changed is because there is another community college that is called SVCC (Southside Virginia Community College) and the VCCS Chancellor settled the matter by ordering them to change their name.
The truth is that a lot more people would rather take online, night, or off campus classes than drive all the way through the mountains to get to the main campus.
