September has been an exhilarating time here at University Village! Our residents are all settled into their new homes and now that the craziness of moving in has calmed down, Team UV has been throwing some iconic events for the residents. In the month of September, we celebrated National Cheese Pizza Day by having our residents come to the front desk and tell us a secret phrase to get a slice! We also celebrated National Cheeseburger day by having a cookout as a treat to our residents during the week. We had our very first movie by the pool and had the residents vote for what they wanted to watch! The movie of choice was Halloweentown. We had plenty of popcorn, candy, and drinks to really enhance the movie experience! We can't wait for our future events this semester
August is always an exciting time for University Village!

We welcomed Phase II to our UV family and grew to 924 residents. Move-in day was busy for everyone and we are so excited to have another great year! After residents got settled into their new homes, we launched our 2nd annual Week of Welcome!
8/19 Monday: Team UV hosted a breakfast on the go for the first day of classes! We had bagels, donuts, coffee, breakfast sandwiches and so much more! It was the perfect start to the week!
8/20 Tuesday: We know that grocery trips can be a hassle especially during the first week of school, so Team UV had it covered with Grocery Bingo! We got 10 full grocery bags stuffed with Mac and cheese, cereal, bread, peanut butter, jelly and many other goodies. We even had a raffle for a brand new vacuum. The club room was packed from wall to wall and our winners were ecstatic to call BINGO.
8/21 Wednesday: Wednesday's event was Walking Taco's! We know our residents are always on the go, so what's better than a taco in a chip bag! It was a delicious, quick meal and it was perfect to have poolside.
8/22 Thursday: Thursday evening we headed down to Phase ll to serve it up at the volleyball courts! We had music and drinks and had some residents out there playing lakeside. The weather couldn't have been more perfect and it ended with a beautiful UV sunset.
8/23 Friday: First week of classes ended, so we thought our residents needed some sweet treats. We had cupcakes, cookie cakes, candy and other sweet treats. It was a sweet way to end the week.
8/24 Saturday: To officially end week of welcome, we had to have one of our legendary pool parties. We had plenty of burgers, hot dogs & drinks! Also, Red Bull and Jimmy John's donated drinks and chips. After our pool party ended, a Taste of UV started across at the shops, which was a great event to sample some of the items the stores have to offer!
We loving putting on these amazing events for our residents and can't wait to have more throughout the year!
Our UV family is growing! We just added four energetic and motivated Community Assistants. We now have a total of 8 CA's on our iconic team. Everyone say hi to Kohl, Soph, Kris, and Sydney!
Kohl is from Fort Pierce, FL and recently graduated from FGCU. He will be starting Grad School in the fall. Some of his hobbies include fishing, jamming out on the guitar, and playing sports!
Soph also recently graduated from FGCU and currently lives at UV. Some of her favorites hobbies include dancing, playing with dogs, and binge watching her favorite TV shows!
Kris is a Senior and is majoring in Marketing! When he's not working out at the state of the art fitness center, you can catch him playing basketball or Fortnite.
Sydney is a Junior at FGCU and majoring in Business Marketing. When she's not chilling by the UV pool, you can find her watching sunsets with her roommates and crushing Mario Kart!
We are so excited to have them join the UV family and feel the #UVillageVibes!
