We hope this semester has settled down for you! We’re filling up for the next school year, so if you’re interested in living with us again next year, make sure to renew ASAP! Sadly, two of our team members — Shelby, our General Manager, and Brittney, our Leasing Manager — have left Greenville to start new adventures. However, we look forward for the new changes to come to the property in the future. Be on the lookout for our upcoming events throughout the month. We hope you have a fun and safe spring break!

- Have you ever found it hard to talk to your roommate about issues in your apartment? Our Resident Director Cheyanne Rollings is always open to help in any situation.
- Cold weather tips:
- Leave your heat set to a minimum of 65 degrees (this prevents pipes from freezing).
- Leave your sink cabinets open.
- Allow a small drip from all faucets.
- Stock up on food/water in case of extreme weather conditions.
Reminders & Updates
- Rent is due the 1st of every month, and late fees will be applied on the 6th.
- If you have a maintenance emergency or are locked out of your apartment after hours, please contact the on-call Community Assistant at (252) 321-7613.
- Keep in mind that if you have an emergency work order, you MUST call it in instead of submitting online. Water intrusions, power outages, and HVAC systems are examples of emergencies.
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.
