Fall is here, and Halloween is near! Throughout the month, we’ll have some exciting events to help get you in the Halloween spirit. Be on the lookout for our social media contest and find out ways to win awesome prizes. Follow us on Instagram for exclusive giveaways happening throughout the month. Remember to check your email and stay up to date on our social media so you don’t miss important updates.

Special Highlight

All month long, we’ll be holding a spooky porch contest. Don’t forget to have fun with your roommates, decorate your porch, and potentially win an awesome prize! Winners will be announced on November 1.

Reminders and Updates

  • Join our Relay For Life Team! Simply search for “Grayson Cottages” on the Relay For Life homepage and help us reach our goal of $1,000!
  • Please don’t leave your trash out on your porch! You will be charged for doing this, and raccoons and other critters can tear into the bags and leave trash everywhere. A dumpster is located at the back of the property near 1619 for your convenience.
  • Rent is due on the 1st of the month, and late fees will be applied on the 4th at 1 p.m. when the office opens. Please call us if you have questions on how to set up recurring payments on your portal.
  • Please help us keep our community beautiful! Please pick up your dog’s waste and place it in the proper stations located throughout the property. Failure to do so will result in a fine.
  • We love you enjoying our amenities, so please remember there is no glass allowed at our pool.

Happy October!

We hope you’ve had a good start to the semester! Everyone should be settled in by now and ready to take on the school year. October will be packed with events and a special Resident Appreciation Week planned from October 2–6, so be sure to look at the events section in this newsletter.

Renewal rates and new lease rates are ready! Please stop by the front desk so we can answer any questions you have in regard to renewing your lease — we’re happy to help.

Get involved. Get ahead.

Did you know students who are involved outside of the classroom are more successful in their academic pursuits? If you haven’t already done so, we encourage you to find opportunities to get involved on campus and in the local community. Your campus’ student activities office is a great place to start to find out about clubs, organizations, and campus events. You can also connect with our team to find ways to get connected. Whether it’s the chess club or intramural football, or volunteering at a local shelter, we would love to help you find ways to get involved both at your Campus Advantage community and on campus.
