ASCC-SAFF Performs at Teuila Festival
Over the last few years, the Student Association for Faasamoa (SAFF) has established itself as one of the strongest student organizations at the American Samoa Community College (ASCC). Overseen by the Samoan Studies Institute (SSI), the SAFF promotes Samoan culture, arts and values while also providing its members with an academic support group, particularly in the area Samoan Studies. While membership may vary from semester to semester, the SAFF has consistently showcased its home pride, discipline and enthusiasm through cultural performances on numerous special occasions here at home as well as overseas at the most recent Festival of the Pacific Arts held in the Solomon Islands two years ago.
