It’s that time of the year when the leaves begin to change colors and pumpkin spice lattes start flowing! The Midtown staff is so excited for all the amazing fall fun we’re going to have this month. We’ll be celebrating the spooky season with our Midtown Phobia House along with a monthlong contest to see who has the spookiest balcony. So start brewing your ideas, and may the spookiest win!

Special Highlight

We’re highlighting our zone Leaders this month! Avery, Jenna, and Jessica have been hard at work to make sure you all have a stellar time here at Midtown. Be on the lookout for your zone leader — they might just pop by!

Reminders and Updates

Make sure you keep open flames away from flammable items in your apartment, and never leave candles burning unattended.

Our community’s quiet hours are 10 p.m.–8 a.m. Please respect your neighbors just as you would want them to respect you.

The Battle of the Piney Woods is October 7. Go and show your Bearkat spirit!

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, 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 and would love to see you stay with us next year!

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.
