We hope you’re all getting ready for the April showers that bring May flowers! Similar to the showers are all the exams at the end of the month. Don’t forget: If you’re planning to take summer classes, registration is coming up soon. We would love to help take your mind off the stress, so we’ll be having a ton of events throughout the month directed toward relieving your stress! Additionally, we have a lot of great community upgrades coming soon, including faux wood floors in the apartments and new Dell computers in the business center.

REMINDER: Our rates could be changing very soon, so if you’re still thinking about renewing, make sure you call the office and see if you still qualify for preferred resident renewal rates in your same bed space!

Get ready for that famously hot Columbia weather!

Special Highlight

 

  • If you are having any issues with your air conditioner, make sure you cut it off and the fan on so that maintenance can handle the issue as quickly as possible.
  • Maintenance recommends leaving your AC at 76 degrees for the best results.
  • Help us keep our community clean by throwing away trash in the appropriate bins after those Gamecock celebrations!
  • Don’t forget: We are pet friendly. All you have to do is come to the office and get those new kitties and puppies registered.
  • In order to keep traffic accidents to a minimum, we must go in and out the appropriate gates. Anyone caught going in or out of the incorrect gate can and will be fined accordingly!
