Kelly Lazorik, Regional Leasing Manager, states that one thing we make clear living the Vie Way , is not just about a place to live, but a lifestyle. We create an atmosphere where students couldn’t imagine having to stay anywhere else. They can host a study group with their classmates in our social lounge, invite friends over for a pool day, or watch the big game from a neighbor’s apartment where drinks are on ice and the couch is packed with hyped-up college students ready to cheer their team on in the ACC championship. Millennials thrive for modern flare with a convenient lifestyle, and that is exactly what we provide. Vie cares about the residents, the students, because if it weren’t for them, this fun, sometimes crazy industry wouldn’t exist! We appreciate the residents, and it is so important to us that we show them we care.
Vie hosts “Resident Appreciation Week” not just once, but every month of the year. Whether it’s a friendly, Package Delivery day where we go out of our way to add even more convenience to their day or hosting free tacos in the clubhouse with a margarita glass decorating contest, the number one question in mind is, “How can we show these residents our appreciation?”
At Vie, we want to step outside of the box. We want to set the tone for the ultimate college living experience. With that being said we do not only want our residents to receive the ultimate college experience, we want our students to achieve success in society. Our properties will host tutoring sessions or even provide special speakers to train our students on filing their taxes, resume tips or even a self-defense seminar.
We also make a point to include our residents in certain decisions that might affect them, and we open a platform for comments so they can feel part of the community because their voice does matter. Vie has conducted several resident surveys regarding future renovations and what amenities residents would prefer to see, or what resident events we should host next at the property, and who’s concert tickets we should give away in our next social media contest. We want to hear their opinions and most of all we want our residents to be happy. At Vie we give our students more than just an apartment, we give them a home.
