Welcome to the Winter Quarter

We are so excited to start a new quarter with our residents! I hope everyone got a chance to relax during the winter break. As we kick off the new quarter, we are excited to bring new content and events for our residents. Look below for a sneak-peak for our activities this quarter:

Sustainability Updates

Winter break is just around the corner! Which means cooler days, holidays, and a winter travel. Take this upcoming break from school as an opportunity to organize your room and free some space up. Here are good tips for the upcoming break:

- Clean up your room and identify items you do not need anymore. If you are traveling to a place you can store these items, take time to go over your belongings and take the items you do not use anymore. This is a perfect time to make space for those cozy winter clothes.
