Spend Your Summer in Huntsville!

Thank you for choosing to stay with us this summer as we catch some rays and take advantage of the sun being out! Make sure to come out to our off-property events and invite friends! We look forward to another great summer and an amazing start to a new school year.

Special Highlight

Don’t forget to pick up after your furry friend! It’s super easy to walk over to one of our pet waste stations and take a few minutes to keep our community clean.

Reminders & Updates

We have started the process to upgrade our Internet throughout the property! If you’re experiencing Internet issues, try resetting your router a few times. You can also call a technician at 1-888-PAVLOV.

Find Your Campus Advantage

With summer in full swing, you might be finding yourself with some extra time on your hands. While we love to hear all about how you fill your summers with fun trips and activities, baseball games, and farmers’ markets, this time of year can also be perfect for gearing up your professional side. Check out some of the tips below on how you can give yourself the “Campus Advantage” above your peers this summer:

  • Visit your campus career center. Since it is summer, they are often less busy and can give you individual support for updating your resume or prep you for an upcoming interview.
  • 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 in the summer months on business wear, so 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!
