We hope everyone is enjoying their home at The Knox. We’ve reached that time of year where you can bring out your sweaters and long sleeves and won’t get made fun of for dressing up as your favorite fictional character. We have some exciting events coming up in October, including everything from game night to a very cliché Halloween party. Join us as we take advantage of the many amenities we have to offer here at The Knox!

 

Special Highlight:

  • Lowest renewal rates GUARANTEED until October 31. See office for details.
  • Smoking in your apartment is NOT allowed. Doing so can carry a fine of $100 per resident and lead to eviction with additional fines of $250 per resident. There is no smoking allowed in the lobby, clubhouse, parking garage, stairwells, elevator, or within 30 feet of any entry door to the buildings.
  • Quiet hours are Sunday through Thursday from 10:00 p.m.–8:00 a.m., and Friday and Saturday from midnight–8:00 a.m.
  • We now have a courtesy officer who patrols the property from midnight–6:00 a.m.
  • Pet waste stations are located on the first floor dog run and on Laurel Avenue by the gated entrance. If you have not registered your pet, please do so immediately to refrain from receiving any fines.
  • We’re now hiring for a Community Assistant. Please apply at www.communityassistant.com.

Happy Fall!

We hope your academic year is off to a great start! Did you know research shows that those 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. 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 and connected both at your Campus Advantage community and on campus.

Campus Advantage is also a national partner with Relay For Life, the largest worldwide fundraising initiative to support cancer research, survivors, and their families. If you would be interested in participating in your community’s Relay For Life team, please let us know. So far, with the help of our residents, we’ve raised $200,000 for Relay For Life!

Whatever you choose, we encourage and challenge you to get involved, stay active, and give back! Please let us know what we can do to support your experience.
