Welcome to the hottest, but most fun, month of the year! We’re very excited for all of our July events and hope everyone can attend them. We’ll celebrate our independence, Christmas in July, and end the month with donations to help those around us.

There’ll be plenty of events in between to build community with your home away from home. For those of you moving out August 4, we’re sad to see you go, but please enjoy one more month of events with us. This month is sure to be full of community, food, and, of course, fun! We can’t wait to see you all there!

 

Maintenance Tips 

  • Reminder: Your A/C should never be set to “off” or “on”. It should just be set on “auto”.
  • Don’t have your windows open while your A/C is running.
  • Place trash outside your door from 6–9 a.m. on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
  • Pest control comes every Thursday, so place your work order accordingly.
  • At the beginning of July, please submit any maintenance requests you want resolved before move-out.
  • Any discoloration in the ceiling should be reported immediately (this is a sign of a possible leak).

 

Move-Out Reminders

  • Clean your carpets before moving out and provide a receipt to the office upon turning in your keys.
  • Dust and clean all of the apartment.
  • A good rule of thumb is to leave the apartment cleaner than you received it.
  • We’ll have a donation bin in the office for unwanted items.
  • Return your personal cable box to Comcast, but leave the living room cable box.
  • Don’t leave any personal items in the apartment.
  • Contact the office for a move-out guide if needed.

 

Have a Successful Summer with CA!

With summer in full swing, you might be finding yourself with some extra time on your hands. Summer can be an amazing time to have fun, enjoy trips and activities, attend baseball games, go to a farmers market, and much more. But summer can also be perfect for gearing up professionally! Check out some of the following tips on how you can give yourself the “Campus Advantage” above your peers this summer:

  • Visit your campus’s career center. Since it’s summer, they are often less busy and can give you individual support for updating your resume or prepping you for an upcoming interview.
  • Log in to your resident portal and take advantage of the numerous resources in the Campus Advantage Career Success Portal!
  • Even if you don’t absolutely need a job this summer, consider finding a low-key part-time position that could provide you with some extra resume experience. Consider positions with transferable skills that would benefit your major.
  • Find a new volunteer opportunity or organization to join that fits a hobby of yours or helps others. Giving back looks great on your resume, makes a difference, and makes you feel good at the same time!
  • Hard to believe that shopping can help your professional game, but stores often have sales on business wear during the summer. Check out the racks to see if you can find a few classic interview-appropriate pieces for the fall.
  • Stop by the management office and let them know what kind of events they could host this summer/fall to help make you successful!
