We’re so excited for this upcoming season, and we have a lot planned for you. We hope midterms go well, and don’t forget about our 24-hour computer lab! We have coffee in the office, and Red Bull in the fridge!

Maintenance Tip

If you are turning on your heat for the first time, you may notice a burning smell. This is caused by the heat burning off the existing dust that has build up due to not using the heat. The smell should dissipate within 12-30 minutes. If it does not, please contact the leasing office at 936-436-0900.

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.
