We don’t know about you all, but we’re going to spend summer how it’s meant to be spent — by the pool! We’ve got a lot of great events planned for you, including Food Truck Fridays, barbecues by the pool, and Waffle Wednesdays. We’ll be cranking up the tunes, serving up free food, and giving away tons of prizes all month long.

We’d also like to take this time to extend a warm welcome to our new residents and staff members! Make sure to stop by our events this month — they’re great opportunities to meet new people and make new friends.

Stay cool out there — it’s getting hot!

 

Special Highlight

  • Please remember to pick up after your pets. We love our puppies — just not their poo. And don’t forget to stop by the clubhouse for free treats!
  • Remember to keep our breezeways clean and clutter free by taking trash to the compactor and not leaving it by your doors.
  • No outside furniture or trash are allowed on balcony/patios.
  • Anyone who brings in a sublease who renews for fall 2017 gets their sublease fee waived.

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!
