As soon as you walk into The Vista’s bright and welcoming office, you’re greeted by cheerful employees and a sweet Black Labrador, Modelo. Modelo belongs to Courtney Jurasko, General Manager of Turlock’s off-campus, pet-friendly housing, The Vista.

Jurasko was excited to tell us about her home and place of work. She is passionate about The Vista; they are attuned to the need of college students and they build their practice around it. The Vista offers various lots of amenities, safety features, and a sense of community.

Amenities include the ideal summer set-up: a resort style pool and a modern outdoor living area with BBQ grills, plus student-friendly features such as private study rooms, a computer lab with free printing, and much more. Read more about it at

Safety features at The Vista are extensive, and they include: Emergency call boxes, security cameras, courtesy patrol, gated entry to the property, and keyed entries to get into residence buildings. The Vista also has emergency text message and email alerts that are sent to students and their parents.

Rosario Cornejo (Junior, Liberal Studies) enjoys the opportunities to socialize in particular.

“I like how they do community events,” Cornejo said. “We meet a lot of new people and the events are really fun.”

Jurasko, too, is both proud of the events as an employee and enjoys them as a resident. Community events can be anything from movie nights, video game tournaments, or ice cream socials.

“A lot of the students have gotten really close here,”  Jurasko said.

The Vista empowers residents to feel independent, while understanding the needs of college students. Their All Inclusive Living setup bundles all of the utility bills, including cable and Internet, into one easy to manage bill. Even better, residents don’t have to worry about bringing their own TV or pitching in to buy a couch; every living room comes fully furnished with a flat screen TV.

The Vista strives to provide a great experience for college students by encouraging a community of peers, providing a learning environment, independence, and safety. The Vista is affordable for students, and they accept financial aid.
