the Month

Our squad of the month program recognizes and honors top performers at the company each month. Check out the stories behind our most recent winners!

On-site Office SQuad Member Elizabeth Miller, Leasing Manager @ The Edge
Read More
Starting a year ago, Liz had tons of marketing/leasing skills and she brought that all to The Edge. Since being here, she has added a TikTok account to our portfolio, she has met marketing needs with our playbook being turned in, early most of the time, marketing calendar being in detail and organized, and always keeping the resident needs first. She is the first to speak up and remind anyone of outstanding items that could easily get missed in our small group. She makes it known that the resident's needs are always her main priority. She is always willing to help and lend a hand, no matter the task or her current workload. She gets it done! The Edge has come a long way with her marketing knowledge and efforts, and for that our team is forever grateful for her and her hard work!
On-site Facilities SQuad Member Rodney Sherman, Maintenance @ Starkville

Rodney is the perfect example of Authentic and Genuine. We can always count on him to be his true self while interacting with our residents and staff. He is a great example of someone who is willing to continue learning and expanding his knowledge. Whether it be after-hours calls, additional support at another asset, or making sure our residents receive the best service possible, he is always on top of it. He has shown a true dedication to the property and has taken pride in the asset. We are so thankful for his hard work!
Corporate SQuad Member Kristin Fodrie, Regional Director
Read More
A lot has changed in the regional world over the last few months and Kristin has taken it in stride. No matter what challenge arises, her dedication is unwavering. Dedication to her team, the community, and even the whole SQuad. On top of her day job, Kristin has volunteered to assist outside her region, lent a hand with DD items both remote and onsite, and taken a stab at training. Even with all that’s on Kristin’s plate, she’s still available and willing to pitch in where needed to get the job done all with a smile on her face and a great attitude. Kristin makes it all look easy. I love working alongside Kristin because no matter what gets thrown at you, you will always have a teammate.



Before working at Student Quarters, I had trouble finding a company that had everything I was looking for to feel at home. I wanted culture that allowed me to be me. I wanted team members that felt like family. I wanted to feel appreciated by the corporate team. I can comfortably say that all my boxes have been checked and I have found a company with everything I have been looking for! Since joining the SQuad, I have found support, culture, and family flowing in from all positions!

Student Quarters is a place brimming with employee enthusiasm and major opportunity. Very few places leave one feeling quite so optimistic about the future direction of the company in a way that makes you want to dig in and do your part to the best of their ability. This translates not only in daily tasks, but across cultural initiatives and community projects that SQ takes part in as well. Even through the challenges that come with exponential growth, we are forging something really special and I personally want to be a part of the SQ story that’s unfolding- can’t wait for the next chapter!

Sharon Maxwell

Property Accounts Manager


When interviewing with a new company, you never know if what you are told is the truth until you actually start. Since joining the SQuad, I can tell you that everything I hoped would be true, is true. The people are genuine, and let you truly run without holding you back. There is ample coaching, but there is also ample freedom to come in, grind, and work. As a part of the SQuad, you are not a number or an employee, but instead a valuable piece of the puzzle that is respected, cared for, and treated well.
