We believe community life is the at the center of the American Studies Program (ASP) and will be one of the defining aspects of your semester. We view this semester as a bridge into professional and adult life and as such we aim to create a community that will support and challenge you in your role as a both a working professional and student. This semester you will get to experience what it is like to work in a large professional city, to live in independent apartment style living, and to build your networks, professional, personal, and spiritual.

We believe that all of that should be an exciting and formative experience, and that you should have a supportive community to experience it with. That being said, we strive to create a safe, open, and inclusive environment where all are welcomed. Our facilities are well equipped with residential, communal, and academic spaces all geared to foster a rich community amongst peers and staff.
