The Ranch at StarPass threw a view party for the Victorian Secrets Fashion Show. The team outdid themselves and gave away prizes for the participants. It was a huge hit, and the event went off without a hitch. “After seeing the pictures, I’m jealous I wasn’t invited” Shannon Latsko, Leasing and Marketing Director at University Village.
University Village took their residents to the Zoo Lights despite the frigged temperatures, and as always, it was a huge success.
The View got into the holiday spirit and passed out goodies to their residents. After much deliberation, we’ve decided that these will be the new View uniforms.
