    Campus Safety

    Safety is guaranteed in ASCC. Securities are strict and are pretty much on their feet (or carts) all over the campus every time.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are many clubs but the most popular clubs are the dance clubs. School clubs always participates in school activities such as dance competitions, pageants, holiday events, etc.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    There is Miss ASCC pageant that goes on every 2 years. For Samoan classes, there is always some sort of school function that practices the cultural traditions which is very interesting. The Student Body also plans a lot of fun and great activities.

    What to do for fun

    You can sit in an empty classroom and watch movies on a laptop with your friends, or visit the library and listen to your iPod or sleep. You can also make a small picnic area on the lawn or under the huts and catch up on sleep until your next class.

    Food and Dining

    Great Food! There's breakfast and lunch and the best thing about it is that it's $4 a plate-lunch or breakfast.

    Dorm Life

    There's no dorm.

    Academic Rigor

    With such a small classroom (max 25), it is very challenging and intense. Scholarships and opportunities are limited so everyone fights to be the best. Not just outside of class but in class too. Reputation is essential.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make as much and as many friends because you're going to need them for such a small college. Be open-minded because culture is rich. And lastly, carry a water jug or DRINK LOTS OF WATER!

    In three sentences

    The college is pretty laid back and has a great island feeling. You get as much interaction in this small college and you make long lasting friends and remember them the next semester. It is just like high school because of the small classes and active student body organization that makes everyone get to know everyone.

    Campus Safety

    We have campus security and they are very effective :)

    Greek Life

    .............

    Clubs and Activities

    Club rallies are great and it is the only thing that most students look out for.

    Great for these types of students

    -Students that are not ready to leave home. -Students that depend on their parents for everything.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    There is a lot of traditions shared on campus, the students have their own routines for the day with their friends and most students hang out with their club members doing random things. Each club have their own location/turf on campus.

    Bang for the buck

    Cheapest school :)

    What to do for fun

    There are club rallies and activities at school but I got chores to do after class.

    Food and Dining

    The cafeteria food is good and cheap also:)

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms at ASCC because it is a small island and students basically stay with their parents.

    Academic Rigor

    For me I have learned a lot but I feel like there is much more to be taught by the teachers and learned by the students.

    Tips for prospective students

    -Take the SAT and use your scores to get your classes because the Placement Test is lame. -Listen to your teachers and learn all you can. -Stop procrastinating because in college, you are not going to get anything out of it.

    In three sentences

    ASCC is a good school and I enjoy it because it is the only college on island. Over the past semesters, I have learned a lot from the professors here in ASCC. The school needs an upgrade on its registration system and it is a bit crowded for it is the only college on island.

    Campus Safety

    I have no doubt to this school since it already had tons of security guards surrounding the campus. This i said nothing bad will happen because its over protected.

    Greek Life

    I am quiet but is cool when alone with a friend. I don't really like talking offensive language but would like to get to know people friendly.

    Clubs and Activities

    I was gonna say this school out of the whole World has a lot of clubs and are the most interesting ones. It instill clubs such as christian, dance related, and science, math, every single subject they considered club.

    Great for these types of students

    The type of students i had seen here are the most talented people ever. It is full of academic and athletic support. We run school work and at the same time we do for games too.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Most likely the island is full of religious somehow people enrolled are the most spiritual ones. They know how to be love and gentle to oneself.

    Bang for the buck

    I am always confused on money to pay for my tuition and fees. But i actually work myself in factories that is close to my place such as a store to get little money for whatever needed to be done in school. I was on financial aid suspension, however I'm trying to work my way up to pay this whole amount and get back to college at ASCC. Right now i am schooling online at Everest college, Arizona.

    What to do for fun

    I play games with my friends or my youngsters. And sometimes read books whenever i get bored.

    Food and Dining

    ASCC, provides a cafeteria and it charges food. So lucky if someone has money to buy them lunch. I don't like eating that much since I'm skinny so i just like keeping my appetite.

    Dorm Life

    This school don't provide dorms for student. Since its on our island so apparently, we get to sleep tight at home. But i wonder when we have a dorm kids would be partying every night long.

    Academic Rigor

    ASCC, is the best i ever had. Subjects learned here is no different from what is learned at the states.

    Tips for prospective students

    Pay as much attention to the teachers as well as completing given assignments.

    In three sentences

    The school was the best. Things we learn here are way beyond the hardest. Kids are fun to hang out with.

    Dorm Life

    Never experienced dorm life but my sister who is attending school off island does not like it especially when your roommate hates it when the light is on through out the night while she is studying.

    In three sentences

    American Samoa Community College is the only College here in American Samoa and the only College that majority of the students who graduate from High School attends. American Samoa Community College is well equipped with facilities and faculties who are up to the standards of teaching College level. I would say I wish there were grants available for non-residents students plus offering online classes for classes that do not meet the enrollment number but overall I think that this is the best College and cheaper compared to offisland.
