Fall is here, and we’re hoping for cooler weather! We love seeing the decorations on your homes and the spirit of the community come to life. We’re almost halfway through the semester and wish each of you the best of luck on your midterm exams — you got this! Don’t forget, if you need a caffeine boost or a sugar rush, we have coffee and cookies here in the clubhouse.


We would love to have you with us again! Give us a call or drop by the office to receive your renewal rate and reserve your home for next year.

Happy October!

We hope you’ve had a good start to the semester! Everyone should be settled in by now and ready to take on the school year. October will be packed with events and a special Resident Appreciation Week planned from October 2–6, so be sure to look at the events section in this newsletter.

Renewal rates and new lease rates are ready! Please stop by the front desk so we can answer any questions you have in regard to renewing your lease — we’re happy to help.

Get involved. Get ahead.

Did you know students who are involved outside of the classroom are more successful in their academic pursuits? If you haven’t already done so, we encourage you to find opportunities to get involved on campus and in the local community. Your campus’ student activities office is a great place to start to find out about clubs, organizations, and campus events. You can also connect with our team to find ways to get connected. Whether it’s the chess club or intramural football, or volunteering at a local shelter, we would love to help you find ways to get involved both at your Campus Advantage community and on campus.

How are we doing?
