It’s the birth month of our beautiful country and its independence, so what better movie to host by our pool than Independence Day?! Bring your pool floaties and an appetite on July as we’ll be roasting s’mores by the fire while we watch the patriotic film.

Of course, we’ll have several other events going on this month that include saving the cows and beating the heat with an ice cream day. Be sure to check the calendar in the clubhouse for those dates.

Don’t forget to follow us on social media for quick updates on how to win other exclusive giveaways throughout the month as well as for event reminders so you don’t miss out on the fun!

Special Highlight

Stop by the office and grab some awesome glasses for the fireworks that are printed in exciting full-color graphics to really make your Fourth of July experience pop!

Reminders and Updates

Please do not shoot off any fireworks around the community. If you’re looking for a good show, the City of Columbia will be hosting its annual fireworks show in Flat Branch Park on July 4 beginning at 9:15 p.m. They will also have live music beginning at 6:30 p.m.

If you are renewing, don’t forget that we need your proof of personal liability insurance coverage by August 1, 2019 so you remain compliant with your renewal lease. All residents will be required to possess and provide documentation of personal liability insurance.

Have a Successful Summer with CA!

With summer in full swing, you might be finding yourself with some extra time on your hands. Summer can be an amazing time to have fun, enjoy trips and activities, attend baseball games, go to a farmers market, and much more. But summer can also be perfect for gearing up professionally! Check out some of the following tips on how you can give yourself the “Campus Advantage” above your peers this summer:

  • Visit your campus’s career center. Since it’s summer, they are often less busy and can give you individual support for updating your resume or prepping you for an upcoming interview.
  • Log in to your resident portal and take advantage of the numerous resources in the Campus Advantage Career Success Portal!
  • 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 on business wear during the summer. 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!
