We at Redtail on the River hope you’re all enjoying your fall season! It’s time to start thinking about what your plans are for next year. We would love to give you more information about renewing your lease at Redtail — come talk to us today! We love having you as part of the Campus Advantage family, and would love to see you again next year.

Maintenance Tips

Keep an eye on your AC units! Experts say that if you want to run your AC during fall, it’s best to keep it at 78 degrees or higher. Be careful not to run your AC lower than 74 degrees or you can risk freezing it over — which means that we won’t be able to repair it for a 24-hour period. You can also take advantage of the cooler evening weather and open your windows. Make sure your AC is set to “auto”, not “on”. Turn on your fans in order to move the air around the apartment.

Reminders & Updates

Rent is due on the first of the month! Make sure you pay before October 5 to avoid any late fees! If you need assistance setting up your online portal or writing checks/money orders, come to the office and we’ll give you a hand.

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 in October, 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.

How are we doing?
Have you filled out your resident satisfaction survey yet? Please take a moment to let us know how we’re doing and get a chance to win a $1,000 or $500 gift card! Simply visit http://ratemy.community. We are always working to improve your experiences!
