ASG Student Housing
The American Scholar Group (ASG) has multiple residence halls and dormitories in the Western Pennsylvania & Eastern Ohio region in the United States. ASG housing provide 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 includes study areas, laundry facilities, student lounges, recreational areas and Wi-Fi internet access. Each dorm is supervised by a houseparent to accommodate student needs. ASG housemasters 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.
House parents play an essential role in cultivating the foundation of every student’s experience. Embodying the qualities of a role model, House parents take an active role in fostering strong relationships between students and reinforcing the educational and academic mission of the American Scholar Group. They serve as mentors, teaching and guiding our students in the ways of respect, accountability, positivity and citizenship. House parents strive to usher in the concept of a team spirit throughout their housing community, brining out the best in each individual student as well as the residential community as a whole. House parents extend a guiding hand in the affairs of the House and are pro-actively concerned with the general behavior, activities and social functions of the students. They serve as a vital link between their housing family and the ASG community. The nurturing and caring nature of each House parents allows them to provide a unique, parental touch so our students feel as if they are right at home.
