What is ASG?
The Associated Scholars Guild (ASG) is the student organization of the Honors Program. The ASG is primarily responsible for all extracurricular activities of the Honors Program. ASG sponsors student-run committees. (See "Committees" for more information.) These committees give you extraordinary opportunities for leadership, service, recreation, experience developing projects, creativity of all sorts.
As a current ASG member, you may be interested in serving on or chairing a committee. Unlike many student interest groups, ASG is not a club: its purpose is to involve all interested Honors student members in activities that support their growth as community members and future leaders. ASG members can learn to organize, plan, delegate, negotiate, brainstorm--while serving the goals of an Honors education outside the classroom.
ASG members can be as involved--or uninvolved--as they wish. It's a great place, though, to either develop your skills as a leader or to start learning to lead for the first time.
A Steering Committee of students manages the ASG's committees, funds, and other aspects of the organization.

HPEO and ASG: A Beautiful Relationship by Abbey Jackson
If you’re confused about the difference and/or relationship between ASG and HPEO, you’re not alone. I remember several people asking which one was which at my SOAR and still being confused about it later. So I’m going to try to break it down in the simplest terms and, hopefully at least, help you understand how they’re related.
