South Puget Sound Community College (SPSCC) is the recipient of the 2018 Auditor’s Civic Challenge Capital Cup (Auditor’s Cup) for registering the most voters during the week of National Voter Registration Day. Thurston County Auditor Mary Hall presented the award to student leaders at the Olympia Campus on Oct. 30.
Transportation is a daily necessity for everyone at SPSCC – students, staff, and faculty alike. Many drive, but those who can’t (or don’t want to) end up seeking out alternative solutions for their daily college commute. Be it a matter of convenience or necessity, public transportation provides an invaluable service to many at SPSCC. We set out to interview members of the college community that ride the bus to learn more about the reasons why they ride, and why public transportation works for them.
