Former ASCC MSP Students Continue Research, Community Service

Students often wonder where their chosen paths will take them after their time at the American Samoa Community College (ASCC). With so many options available to them today, the possible pathways are endless, and these choices can feel overwhelming. Several former ASCC students returned home for the summer, each of them currently pursuing a Bachelors or Masters degrees in Marine Science at the University of Hawai‘i at Hilo (UHH), and they shared the positive experiences that have resulted from their choice to enter the field of Marine Science.


Highest Number Yet of ASCC B.Ed. Student Sit Praxis Test

The Teacher Education Department (TED) at the American Samoa Community College (ASCC) reached a milestone during the spring 2014 semester with its highest yet number of Bachelors in Education (B.Ed.) students sitting the national Praxis 1 examination. The results of the tests, recently received by the TED, gave additional cause for congratulations with a third of the students tested earning passing scores on their first attempt and the remainder coming close to passing.
