We hope everyone is enjoying fall as much as we are! We have awesome fall events planned this month, so watch out for those — you don’t want to miss out. As always, we hope you are loving your home here at Forest Village & Woodlake!
Did you know that October was originally the eighth month of the Roman calendar? It comes from “octo,” the Latin word for eight. Later, it became the 10th month when January and February were added to the calendar.
Reminders and Updates
As always, please be courteous to your neighbors and take your trash to the dumpsters and clean up after your pets!
Be safe on Halloween! Make sure to use STRIPES, a free safe ride program provided to all Mizzou students.
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, 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 and would love to see you stay with us next year!
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.
