When Hillsborough Community College opened a new Ruskin campus less than eight years ago, Allen Witt never imagined how fast it would grow. But by the end of its inaugural school year, there were definite signs of things to come.

HCC SouthShore had held classes in leased office space at the Sun Point Shopping Center since 2003. Enrollment there had grown to about 600 students per school year, said Witt, then academic dean and now campus president. Once the college’s new academic building at 551 24th St. N.E. opened, its student body burgeoned to 1,652.
