Happy April, everyone! Can you believe the semester is almost over? It feels like we were just getting the spring semester started last week. I’m sure many of you have had some tough classes and are ready for the semester to be over — and for summer vacation to start. You’re almost there! This is the final countdown. According to our calculations, there are 33 days left until school’s out for summer. So, get your head in the game, and rock out the last few weeks of the school year. We wish you all the best on your exams!

Special Highlight 

  • Here at The Oliver, we provide 24/7 on-call emergency maintenance. That means that whenever you have an emergency maintenance problem, you can simply call the office, and you’ll be forwarded to one of our wonderful maintenance technicians who will be there in no time to help you out!
  • For any non-emergency maintenance request, you can either log in to your portal account and submit your service request, or stop by the office and submit your request with one of our Community Assistants.

Reminders & Updates 

Rent: Rent is due on the first of every month and can be paid via check, money order, or online payment. We no longer accept partial payments.

Pet policy reminder: If you have a pet, please make sure they are on a leash any time they are not in your apartment. You must pick up after your pet! Any resident who does not have their pet on a leash and/or is seen not picking up after their pet is subject to a fine.

Parking and towing: Please take a moment to check your parking decal to ensure you have the current version. If you have an expired decal, please bring it to the office so we can exchange it for you. The towing company used at The Oliver is Riverside Towing. They are open from 11 a.m.–2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

Intent to vacate: If you do not plan to renew your lease, please be sure to bring in your intent to vacate form. If you don’t have an intent to vacate form, you can stop by the office to fill it out.

Vacant bed spaces: Please remember that vacant bed spaces are not to be used at any time. If items are found in vacant bedrooms or if they are being used, every resident in the apartment will be subject to a fine.

Lock Down That Internship with the Right Tools

In the coming months, universities across the nation will be partnering with businesses to fill internships for the summer and fall semesters. Internships are a great way to fast-track your career and gain valuable experience in the field you’re interested in. Landing the perfect internship may not be the easiest journey, but if you’re equipped with the right tools, achieving that dream opportunity is within reach!

In a 2017 article, Forbes stated, “Resumes are the gateway into the interview, and into the job. The importance of a well-constructed resume cannot be overlooked.” When you’re applying for an internship with that dream company, having a killer resume will push you to the top of the list.

By choosing to live at a Campus Advantage community, you already have access to an arsenal of professional success tools. One that could be really useful is the resume critiquing tool in our Career Success Portal. To access the tool, just log on to CareerSuccessPortal.com!
