My brother was taking Japanese and it was part of the school’s language program. I learned so much about Japanese culture and their way of life that it stuck with me, decades later. This is the type of lasting impression South Puget Sound Community College (SPSCC) is creating with their international student program.

If you’re planning to attend South Puget Sound Community College this year, or in early 2019, there’s a chance you’ll be able to do so and not have to live at home with mom and dad. That’s because Big Rock Capital Partners of Tumwater is set to begin work on Mottman Village, a 90,000-square-foot mixed-use development that is coming to 2800 RW Johnson Boulevard SW. That is not on but close to the community’s college’s main campus. Construction is expected to begin in January, with the project set to be completed in time for fall quarter 2018 or winter quarter 2019, said Ryan Clintworth, managing partner. He expects to secure building permits soon.
