We’re finally out of the heat and into cooler, more comfortable weather. What better way to enjoy this cool weather than with a nice walk on the Carrollton Greenbelt trail. The trail is just a couple minutes away from Timbercrest — you can even walk to one of the trail entrances from here. You can ride bikes, walk your dog, or just enjoy the scenery. Ask one of our staff members about it.

Special Highlight

Colder weather is on the way, which means it’s time to turn on the heat. Make sure to communicate with your roommates on a comfortable temperature for the apartment.

Reminders and Updates

Don’t forget that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We have a donation jar set up in the front office this month to go toward breast cancer awareness. Be on the lookout for more details.

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, 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 and would love to see you stay with us next year!

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.
