As summer comes to an end and young people around the island are preparing to tackle the new school year, college students crowded the ASCC campus earlier this week when it opened up registration on Monday.

Registration will continue throughout the week.

ASCC staff is staying busy, shuffling paperwork and getting class schedules in order before the start of the fall semester.

Every year during this time, it has been a common occurrence for students to spend hours standing in the long lines, waiting impatiently to complete the registration process.

Students who spoke to Samoa News yesterday said their only solution to beating the crowd this year, was to camp out at the ASCC campus as early as 4 a.m. "in hopes of getting done a lot earlier."
