What are good things to include in a campus housing newsletter?

I am in charge of a newsletter for off-campus student housing. We have a two-sided newsletter and it feels very empty. Other than our office hours, events, "simple sweets", and staff section, what else could I add? I want to get the residents more interested in the community side of the housing.

    Are there any events or activities, offline or online, you could advertise?

    You could also feature a local charity, community group, or local store/eatery each week so people get to know the area and what's around

    And maybe a local spot? Where people can submit photos, stories, recommendations etc

    You can highlight a different resident each newsletter cycle

    Or a local business

    Have different contests each period like a scavenger hunt, find the hidden mickeys (with small gift certificates to local businesses - starbucks, subway), cross word puzzle/word search about the complex
