Summertime Is Here!

Summer is here, and we are all here for it! All summer long, we’ll be rolling out events and social media contests, so keep a look out. We’ll soon begin our turn process here in our apartments. That means we need to start preparing for incoming residents’ new homes, so please be patient with us. If we’re working in your apartment this summer, this will save you some stress during August. Enjoy your summer!


Maintenance Tip

Make sure when you are using your A/C unit that you set it to “auto”. Keep the temperature above 70 degrees at all times. Anything below 70 degrees will freeze your system. If you have a service request, just put in a work order via your portal, or by calling or stopping by the office during office hours.

Summer Like a Local

Whether you’re going home or staying put for the summer, take advantage of all our community has to offer! Summers can be a great chance to enjoy the area in some new and different ways. With the hectic pace of school, many students miss out on opportunities to get involved and have fun in their local community during the academic year — it’s time to change that! From festivals to parks and local attractions, below are some ways you can summer like a local. As a bonus, most of them are either free or very affordable!

  • Do something touristy
  • Visit a farmers market
  • Check out a local sporting event
  • Visit your Chamber of Commerce website to find out about local attractions
  • Find a calendar of nearby fairs and festivals
  • Enjoy Fourth of July festivities and fireworks
  • Hike or bike a nearby trail
  • Volunteer with a local organization
  • Have a picnic
  • Go to an outdoor movie or concert
  • Run or walk a local 5K

We’ll also be planning events and activities for you throughout the summer, and if you need ideas for other fun things to do in the area, please let us know. We have information on area resources and a local calendar of events on hand to give you plenty of options. Have a memorable and fun summer!
