July is here, and Summer II classes are starting soon, but the fun is just heating up! Cool off in the clubhouse this month with our free food events! There will be plenty of opportunities to show off your creative foodie side this month. Follow us on social media for fun summer ideas and more!

 

Special Highlight

  • Please keep pets from going to the bathroom in the hallways. No one wants to walk in dog pee or poo! There are doggy bags provided at several stations outside.
  • Summer is heating up! We know you’re going to be at the pool. Cans and plastic bottles are welcome, but please keep all of your glass containers at home.

 

Reminders & Updates

  • Office hours are Monday through Friday from 10 a.m.–6 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m.–4 p.m., and Sunday from 1–4 p.m.
  • Locked out of your apartment, neighbors being loud, or have an emergency? Please call the Community Assistant on call at (361) 985-2002 for any after-hours emergencies. Available seven days a week!

 

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!
