Now Leasing For Fall 2022! Spaces are filling up fast!

The UNCC school year has just begun and we’re incredibly excited to have a new, amazing group of residents. To kick off a great year at Arcadia Student Living, we planned a calendar jam-packed with a variety of residence life events to give our residents and their friends the opportunity to meet and mingle with their neighbors and to enjoy spending time in our luxury amenities.

Week 1 - Welcome Home Pool Bash

For our first resident event, we held a Welcome Home Pool Bash in our resort-style pool. We had a great turnout for our move in day with new residents and parents where they enjoyed the Bang energy promo and gifts while hanging at the pool. Arcadia’s pool is the spot of the summer and one of the highlights for our residents!

Week 2 - Blood Drive

Week two, we held our very first Blood Drive at Arcadia! We partnered with the Blood Connection to have our residents give blood and get antibody tested for COVID. The Blood Connection helped promote the blood drive and brought a large donation truck with lots of volunteers. The group of residents that donated loved being able to help those in need!

Week 3 - Niner’s Tailgate & Pool Party

During our third week of resident events, we held a Niner’s Tailgate and Pool Party at our resort style pool and hot tub. The weather was a little colder than expected, but many residents still showed up for the niner gear giveaway, where we gave away a Charlotte t-shirt, blanket, and a $50 gift card to Buffalo Wild Wings! Residents enjoyed the snacks and FREE football posters from the Charlotte Football team, it was the perfect way to ring in the first home football game.

Week 4 - Food Drive

For our fourth resident event, we held a Food Drive in the Clubhouse. We added a twist to our food drive by labeling each bin with an NFL team and residents were able to place their food items in the bin of the team they thought would win the first NFL weekend opener. We dropped off the food items to the Jamil Niner Pantry and were able to donate 20lbs of food to help local students!

Week 5 - Why Go to Grad School

Week five, we held an information session titled "Why Go to Grad School" where a representative from the English Department at UNCC gave out information to residents interested in applying or attending graduate school. We gave out pamphlets that educate residents on investing in their future by attaining a graduate level degree. Snacks were provided to help facilitate the discussions. Each resident had the opportunity to have a one-on-one conversation with a successful graduate student, who spoke with residents about how they can expand their academic careers, the tips and tricks of being successful in graduate school, and advice on determining which school and graduate program is best for their futures.

Week 6 - Zumba Class

Our very last week of our 6 in 6 events, we held a Zumba class on one of our grassy lawn areas. We got an instructor from the university recreation center on campus to teach and she was great! We had 5 residents attend this event and they all got their blood pumping with the combination of salsa, merengue, and reggaetón dance styles!

Our team has had such an amazing time getting to meet our residents over the past 6 weeks. Here at Arcadia Student Living, we strive to create the best experience in UNC Charlotte off campus housing and hosting a variety of awesome resident events is just one part of achieving that. Keep an eye out for more events to come, we’re looking forward to a great year!
