We at Campus Pointe would like to welcome our residents to the newly renovated clubhouse! As we kick off our new look, we invite you to stop by and enjoy all the new features. As you get ready for spring break, we want to remind you that spots are filling quickly for the 2018–2019 school year. The deadline to renew for your room is March 31; while you can renew after that date, you may not be able to renew for your current room.

We hope that everyone has a warm and fun spring break!

Maintenance Tips

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.

Keeping your heat set at 70–72 degrees allows for the system to run optimally and avoids any freezing issues.

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 a.m. Payments can be dropped in the rent dropbox in the foyer between the sets of glass doors after hours, as well. If you have any questions regarding the payment portal or about your account, please see Jackie Grant in the office or email her at jgrant@campuspointekent.com.

We’re towing! If you haven’t received your parking pass for this year, please stop by the office to do so.

Locked out or have a maintenance emergency? Remember, there is always a Community Assistant on call! Just call (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.

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.
