The American Scholar Group (ASG) has multiple residence halls and dormitories in the Western Pennsylvania & Eastern Ohio region in the United States. ASG housing provides students with a first-hand experience of academic, social, cultural and recreational American life. Each residential facility carries its own unique character and charm while following an established standard of excellence. All homes include study areas, laundry facilities, student lounges, recreational areas and Wi-Fi internet access. Each dormitory is supervised by houseparents to accommodate student needs. ASG houseparents provide the finishing touch to every home as a trusted caretaker for our students. This role functions to create a dynamic culture in every house while students adapt to their cultural immersion experience.
ASG aims to ensure that students live in an environment that allows them to succeed inside and outside the classroom. As such, we house students according to their specific needs, interests, and preferences. Underclassmen and students in need of a more structured setting are typically placed in residential-style housing with a smaller number of housemates. It allows staff to monitor students closely and ensure that they receive the guidance and attention they need to succeed academically. Upperclassmen and more capable and independent students are able to choose college-style living facilities where they have more flexibility to make their own decisions, but continue receiving the support of mentors and counselors. This residence option also allows students to prepare for dorm room living in college.
