The Samoan and Pacific Studies (SAMPAC) program is mandated by law "to promote interest in, and awareness of the culture, including language, and affairs of American Samoa and other islands of the Pacific." In addition, SAMPAC is responsible for the development of cultural, educational, training and research programs for the people of Polynesia and other islands of the Pacific. SAMPAC is a free standing interdisciplinary program. First founded in 1985, SAMPAC is a relatively new program and its full development is currently in progress. Future plans call for the establishment of a major or certificate in Samoan and Pacific Studies. Its activities cover a broad area as represented by three main components: academic, non-academic and research.

April 3, 2003 1:10 AM Geography and Climate
The islands of Samoa lie about 1,600 miles northeast of New Zealand and about 2,600 miles southwest of Hawaii. The narrow coastal plains on the four inhabited islands support most of the people, while the rugged island interiors are covered with dense forest. The islands are protected by coral reefs and lagoons. Sea breezes temper the tropical climate, and temperatures average about 80 degrees Fahrenheit year-round. Although rain is an almost daily event, most of the 115 inches of annual rainfall (average) occurs between October and March.
The approximately 230,000 Samoans live in about four hundred coastal villages ranging in size from one hundred to two thousand people. The only large town is Apia, the capital and commercial center, with a population of about 40,000.
Economy and Government
Archaeological evidence suggests that Polynesians came to Samoa as early as 1000 B.C., Regular contact with Europeans was established throughout the 1800s with the British, Germans and Americans establishing consulates in Samoa. A succession dispute among the Samoan royal families after the death of King Malietoa Laupepa led to Samoan annexation in 1898: Germany took Samoa and the United States took Eastern (now American) Samoa.
After war broke out in Europe in 1914, New Zealand military forces occupied Samoa. In 1919, the League of Nations granted New Zealand a territorial mandate over Samoa. Patriotic Samoans, unhappy with the New Zealand occupation, led a peaceful civil disobedience campaign also known as the Mau Movement. Efforts to create a more representative Samoan government were interrupted by World War II.

What's the big attraction here?
Samoa is the ecotourism capital of the South Pacific with numerous small, family-operated resorts on many beaches of touristic interest. To sleep on a mat in an open-sided Samoan fale with the sound of the waves beating a few meters away and the wind rustling through the thatched roof is one of the top travel experiences the Pacific has to offer. Your hosts will feed you fruit and vegetables from their own gardens, plus fish from the adjacent seas, and there's hiking, surfing, snorkeling, and storytelling to keep you entertained.
Is it difficult to get there?
Polynesian Airlines offers a remarkably straightforward air pass called the 'Polypass' which allows one roundtrip flight to Apia from Sydney, Melbourne, Auckland, or Wellington, then unlimited travel between Samoa, American Samoa, Tonga, and Fiji, all within 45 days at US$1,099. From Honolulu, the pass costs US$1,349. From any of six airports on the U.S. west coast, it's US$1,699. Restrictions are that your itinerary must be worked out in advance and can only be changed once for free (subsequent changes US$50 each). Thus it's important to book all flights well ahead. A 20 percent penalty is charged to refund an unused ticket (no refund after one year). In North America call the airline at tel. 1-800/264-0823. Elsewhere, check the Polynesian Airlines website. The Polypass is not available in December and January.
