Yay! We’ve finally made it out of what seemed like an eternity of cold, dreary weather. Summer is finally upon us, and we hope that everyone has been able to wind down from classes and take in the sun. For those of you who are taking summer courses, just know that you are the real MVPs, and we’re all rooting for you to have a very productive and successful semester!
Please join us this month for our upcoming events! It will be an all-around good time with food, drinks, and so much more. After all, it is the summer, and hard work deserves a break!
We hate to see you go, but if you do plan on moving out before your lease is up, don’t forget that payments will still need to be made. Check in with our staff at the office to make sure your account is up to date with no outstanding balances. Remember, turning in your keys does NOT mean you should stop making payments. We also recommend that you lock your bedroom door before turning your keys into the office.

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!
