Here at UV we strive to create a welcoming environment! Our main focus is centered on getting to know our residents on a more personal level, which begins with helping our Residents find their perfect roomies for Fall of 2018!
On April 17th, we held our Roommate Mixer at Cantina 109. We were able to offer free food, giveaways, a killer playlist, and a space for people to mingle. We are happy to say that some of our Future Residents found their roommates that night and we look forward to all the new friendships that will be made this year at University Village!
This is one of the many events we will be having, so always be on the lookout for what is next!
University Village believes that in order to build a sense of community, you have to be ENGAGED in the community!
Florida Gulf Coast University is a campus that places a high emphasis on community involvement and civic engagement. In addition to many others, FGCU is the hub for an amazing organization called Camp Kesem. Camp Kesem provides a free summer camp experience for children who have been impacted by a parent with cancer. In 2017, FGCU was added as the newest chapter and the first camp session will take place this Fall.
The Camp Kesem team, lead by a group of passionate FGCU students and Non-Profit Administrators, has been diligently raising money to ensure that the youth in our community can enjoy this experience. University Village made the decision to donate money to this cause because we believe in the importance of providing support and encouragement to people as they work through and cope with the effects that cancer can have on a family.
We are also excited to announce that one of our very own Community Assistants, Danielle, applied and was chosen as a Camp Counselor! We are so incredibly proud of her and look forward to seeing the impact that the Camp Kesem Family will have on the FGCU Community.
The Shaved Iced Bar is coming to University Village this April and will be the ultimate hang-out place to chill with friends-literally! TSIB has got you covered with sweet treats and a fun, hip environment that’s open late to enhance your experience!
Shaved Ice: TSIB has over 60 flavors of Shaved Ice that are modeled after the finest and most authentic Hawaiian style.
Home Made Ice Cream: TSIB has over 30 single batch, hand blended flavors that are delivered from Saint Petersburg, FL.
Nitro Coffee: Nitro Coffee is the new cold brew trend! Infusing Nitrogen into the coffee enhances natural sweetness and provides a smooth, velvety, and creamy taste. This is perfect for a morning jump start or a mid-day pick me up!
The Atmosphere: TSIB believes music is the way to connect, so they will have all genres of music playing throughout the day, live bands, and karaoke nights. They will also have trivia nights, boards games, and cornhole!
TSIB is also environmentally conscious! The serving cups are made from 100% corn and if you bring your spoon back, then your next round of toppings is free. Every single time!
Do you want a chance to be a part of this experience? Well good news…TSIB is hiring! Nothing is better than being able to walk to work! Go to https://shavedicebar.com/join/ to fill out an application.
