Thank you for being such wonderful residents and such an important part of our community! We hope that you enjoy your time with us as much as we do with you. We would like to take a moment to remind you that spots for the 2017–2018 school year are filling up quick! The last day to renew for your room is March 31. After that, you may not be able to renew for your same style apartment. Call the office at (330) 673-2202 or stop by to renew.
Locked out or have a maintenance emergency? Remember there is always a Community Assistant on call! Just call the office at (330) 673-2202, wait for the list of options, and dial 9. You’ll be connected with the Community Assistant who will be able to assist you.
Looking for a package? Many times, packages come into the office; however, if you are expecting a package from the postal service (USPS), it is possible that it’s in your mailbox! If there is a key in your mailbox, just use that to open the corresponding parcel locker below the mailboxes.
Reminders & Updates
Here are some tips for a successful year at Campus Pointe:
-Rent is due on the 1st of each month. Luckily, you have until the 3rd to pay your rent before late fees begin accruing on the 4th at 8:00 a.m. If you have any questions regarding the payment portal or about your account, please see Jackie Grant in the office, or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
-We are officially towing! Baker’s Towing surveys the parking lots every evening. Make sure your parking pass is placed in the lower left-hand corner of your rear windshield to avoid any confusion. Please remind your guests to use the visitor lot so they are not towed!
-Need something fixed? Put in a service request in one of two ways: Call the office during regular office hours, or submit online via your resident portal at campuspointekent.com/residents. Please keep in mind that our maintenance team has limited hours on weekends unless it is an emergency, so don’t be alarmed if your request isn’t handled until Monday.
Soft Skills Make a Difference
A positive attitude and the ability to look someone in the eye while giving a firm handshake can truly set two very similar candidates apart in the job process. In this day and age of hiring and recruiting, we’ve been hearing a lot about soft skills, or people skills, when describing a candidate’s interviewing and hiring process. These are the skills that basically allow you to get along and interact with others in a work and social environment. Your ability to evaluate and hone your people skills should be part of your job prep, just as you ensure your resume is clean and typo-free.
An employee should be able to communicate, listen, share ideas, and interact with people (sometimes difficult people) in a way that demonstrates professionalism at all times. During the interview process, while your resume is showing your credentials, you are inherently demonstrating your soft skills. It takes constructive thought to be the person you want to be in the workplace. It doesn’t just happen by chance — it happens via thoughtful awareness, informed actions, and respectful engagements.
The skills of success, such as being adaptable, being positive, having a willingness to assist, and conveying a strong work ethic, are arguably more important than any degree or credential.
