The Students First™ Passport Program
We want to make sure you know how to make the most of your experience this year while living at our community. Check out the four easy steps below on how to join and participate in our Students First™ Passport Program, which will open the doors to fun events and great rewards for you!
Step 1: Get Your Passport
If you’re a new resident, you should’ve received your Students First™ Passport in the welcome packet materials you received on move-in day. If not or if you’re a returning resident, please stop by the management office today to get yours!
Step 2: Keep It Safe
Write your name on the inside cover of your Students First™ Passport, and keep it in a safe location so you don’t misplace it. If you ever need a replacement, just stop by the management office to get a new one. However, we can’t give you back your lost stamps, so try not to lose it!
Step 3: Attend Community Events
We’re going to have a ton of great events for you this year, so make sure to keep an eye out on social media, flyers, and these monthly newsletters to see what’s coming up. When you come to an event, bring your Students First™ Passport with you to receive a stamp for attending. Some events may even be worth more than one stamp, so definitely check those out!
Step 4: Win Big
Throughout the year, we’ll advertise times when stamps can be redeemed for rewards or prizes. In some cases, stamps could equal raffle tickets in a drawing for an awesome prize, or they could count toward a discount on services. Make sure to keep an eye out for the updated Students First™ Passport posters in the management office and clubhouse to find out what your stamps are worth!
That’s it! Four easy steps to join and use our Students First™ Passport Program this year. We hope you have a great year, and if you have any questions or need anything, please don’t hesitate to let us know. Happy traveling!
