Move-Out Tip          

Move-out day is just around the corner! Don’t forget to check your tips and tricks for cleaning before you move out. If you’ve renewed your lease with us, we look forward to another amazing year with you at 18 Seventy-Nine.

 

Special Highlight

  • Enjoy our refreshing saltwater pool and brand-new umbrellas!
  • We’re running the shuttle for both summer sessions starting at 7 a.m.
  • We’ve started parking lot construction and repairs, which will continue throughout the month. Please keep an eye out for this when parking your vehicle.

 

Reminders & Updates

  • With the heat rising, make sure you save on electricity by turning the temperature up in your apartment to 75–78 degrees. Also, make sure your fan is on auto. This is a great way to save some money this summer!
  • Locked out of your apartment after hours or have an emergency maintenance request? Call the office at (936) 436-0900 for help. For any outside emergencies, please call 911 immediately.
  • Rent is due on the 1st of the month, and late fees will be applied on the 4th.
  • We’ll begin entering units to make them ready for incoming residents. We thank you for your patience during this time.

 

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!
