Congratulations to the fall Class of 2017 who will be graduating shortly! We would like to take a moment to thank you for making Campus Pointe your home this year. To those who have not yet graduated, we look forward to another successful and exciting semester this spring with you!
If you won’t be graduating this spring, we encourage you to renew your lease with us at Campus Pointe! Please remember that housing in and around Kent State is in high demand as the university continues to increase incoming class sizes. As a result, we’re filling up quickly for next year and encourage you to sign as soon as possible to ensure the lowest rate possible.
We’re well on our way to completing our extensive clubhouse renovations. We appreciate your patience during this time and look forward to unveiling the end result for you all to enjoy!
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.
If you and your roommates are planning on going home for winter break, please set your heater between 70 and 72 degrees to avoid any freezing.

Tips to Help You Through Finals Week
The time that you’ve been dreading all semester is here: final exams. This is a very stressful time for everyone, so remember to take a minute just for you.
Studies have shown that when you take one minute just for yourself every 30 minutes, your grades will improve. Cramming has proven not to work because you’re stressed, exhausted, and less likely to absorb everything that you’re trying to learn. Taking a minute just for you will allow you to breathe and reset your mind as you continue to study.
After your minute, make sure to take 10 more minutes to review what you’ve learned, and then 20 more minutes of new information before you take another break.
Just thinking about final exams gets stressful, so make sure to breathe and prepare the right way. Whether you’re writing papers, presenting, or taking an exam, preparation is the best way to get an A.
Here are some professor-approved study tips:
- Drink water, not soda or energy drinks.
- Eat fruits and veggies to give you natural energy.
- Turn your phone off as you study to lessen distractions.
- Find a study partner so you can quiz each other.
- Use the on-campus tutoring centers or peer-led groups.
- Talk to your professors! It shows that you care and are trying to do well.
- Make sure to eat a good breakfast the day of your exam. It truly is the most important meal of the day.
As a member of the Campus Advantage team, we want to do all we can to help you succeed! Make sure to stop by your local front office to see what resources or events they have to help you during this stressful week. We know that all of you are going to do amazing on your final exams!
