February came quick this year! So did leasing season. We’re jumping on leases for fall 2019. Be sure to speak with us about how you can secure your spot for the fall before it’s too late and you miss out on our lowest rates. We want to continue to create memorable experiences for you as you stay with us for yet another year.

Special Highlight

Stay tuned to all our social media platforms as we are constantly hosting community-friendly events, doing giveaways, and playing fun interactive games that will keep you engaged in your free time.

Reminders and Updates

Secure your spot as soon as possible to lock in our current renewal rates. The longer you wait, the fewer chances you get of saving up to $15/installment! Reach out to our leasing office, and our friendly team will be more than eager to help you renew!

Focus on Career Success

Whether you are a sophomore looking at internships or a senior getting ready for that first job after graduation, the spring semester brings added pressure as you seek to set yourself apart and set yourself up for success.

Here are five tips to keep you moving forward on a career success track:

Tip #1: The key to getting hired is selling yourself better than the other candidates. What’s your pitch? Practice concise ways to share your value and what you are looking for.
Tip #2: Your resume’s only job is to get your foot in the door! Have it critiqued at the career center.
Tip #3: Google yourself: What does your online presence tell future employers? Are you focusing on your online brand? Your potential employer is! Work on shaping your presence online and off.
Tip #4: Come up with EVERY reason an employer might not hire you — and an answer for each objection. For example, “What I lack in relevant experience, I make up for with my drive and proven ability to learn new things quickly.”
Tip #5: Learn from the best! Find people doing what you want to do and doing it well — and ask them for guidance. It’ll be well worth your time and perhaps a few cups of coffee to do informational interviews with others on their success stories.

These tips are obviously just the tip of the iceberg. Watch out for career success experiences here at your community. Whether you want feedback on your pitch or need someone to critique your resume, let us know how we can help you and connect you with resources to assist in your success!
