Welcome home, summer move-in day is right around the corner! We are so excited for our new residents to move in!
Here are some tips to help you have a smooth and successful move-in:
1.Contact your future roommates
We highly suggest reaching out to your future roommates before move-in day. Be sure to discuss expectations and your ideal living environment. This will help alleviate any new roommate miscommunication and ensure a healthy roommate living environment.
2.Arrive on Time
Arriving on time allows you to maximize the amount of time you have on move-in day! Move-in day is a big day for any new resident so giving yourself a large window of time to move-in helps alleviate stress and makes the whole move-in process easier. Although, arriving early seems tempting on move-in day most leasing offices have a specific time frame they can begin move-ins/issue keys. Move-in day is a big day for properties as well so be sure not to arrive too early, we would not want you to wait around for too long before receiving keys!
3.Avoiding shopping centers on Move-in Weekend
Move-in weekend in a college town can be very chaotic! With hundreds of students moving in to different properties locally, shopping centers will have more traffic than usual. If you prepare in advance and bring your groceries and essential items with you, this will help you avoid shopping centers on move-in weekend and allow you to shop with ease a couple days after!
4.Meet your front desk staff
Visit our leasing office and meet your front desk staff and managers! They will be there on move-in day to assist you with anything you need. Remember these staff members will be able to help you with anything you need after move-in day as well. We can assist you with work-orders, rent- installment questions, etc. Remember we are here to help!
We are still a few weeks away, here are three tips to get you through your finals smoothly and successfully!
1.Start Studying Now
•Do not wait until the day before the test to cram in all your review material. Start Early! Studying in shorter lengths helps improve your comprehension and retention. This will also make studying more enjoyable and less overwhelming.
•During finals week the last thing you want to think about is the Gym. However, exercising even for a half hour will give you substantial benefits. It will refresh your brain and reduce finals worry!
3.Get some rest
•All-nighters are normally the only option during finals week, but your body needs sleep during finals week. This will help your body rest and retain information. If you cannot fathom getting a full night’s rest during finals week, simply take power naps to keep your mind refreshed and ready!
Be sure to check out our Finals Week Event Calendar. We will have events every day to get you through finals week. Remember, finals will be over soon & summer is around the corner!
March represents many different things for people. Two of the biggest things celebrated during March are the start of Spring and St. Patrick’s Day- what’s not to love about either one of those?! Below you will find some fun facts and information on both that will help you prepare for the celebrations.
Spring Time Greatness

All Things Green
St. Patrick’s Day, commonly referred to as St. Paddy’s Day, is on March 17th
Corned Beef & Cabbage is a traditional St. Patrick’s Day dish that originated in New York and not Ireland. Find some great Irish recipes here!
The popularity of Shamrocks and Four Leaf Clovers stems from St. Patrick using these plants to explain the holy trinity to the Irish.
