Event Round Up
Jeopardy

What are the consequences and symptoms of drugs and alcohol? Residents were well informed and after the event was over they got goodies and gift cards as rewards!
March Madness

In celebration of the end of March Madness Trop residents came together to watch the Men's College Basketball Championship! Residents were able to guess the final score of the game and those closest won a prize! Go Tar Heels!
Isla Vista 101

Residents got the chance to get information from our wonderful UCPD about Deltopia. The Do's and Dont's plus they had the chance to question any questions about the law.
Alternatives with Jack

Why go out on Deltopia weekend when you can hang with your super sweet RA? That was an option for 2nd floor Barbados and others who chose to spend a Friday night playing twister and other fun games instead of going out!

Tropicana Villas
Picture Yourself at Tropicana Villas Next Year!

Tropicana Villas, situated three blocks from UCSB, five blocks from the beach, and caters specifically to continuing students. Tropicana Villas provides independent apartment living while offering perks such as by-the-bed leasing (which alleviates individuals from being responsible for other tenants) and discounted rates at the Tropicana café, located one block away at Tropicana Gardens Residence Hall. Tropicana Villas apartments are fully furnished and the student community offers amenities such as a heated pool, on-site laundry, parking for sale, as well as access to all amenities at sister properties, Tropicana Gardens and Tropicana Del Norte, which includes 24-hour quiet study lounges, Cardio Room, Fitness Center, and a 27-seat movie theater.

Competition for IV apartment space can be fierce so it pays to plan ahead and get the apartment you want. Sign now through your MyTropAccount and save your spot for the 2017-2018 school year!
Flu Season
Tips to Keep Trop Healthy
1. Consider getting your flu shot: these are offered at local pharmacies like CVS and at Student Health on UCSB Campus.

2. Remember singing the ABC song twice while washing your hands in kindergarten? Now is the time to start singing again.

3. Wash your hands frequently with soap and water (especially before you eat). Carry a bottle of hand sanitizer with you.

4. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue if you cough or sneeze. If you don't have a tissue, sneeze into your elbow. Be conscious about not touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Don't take a sip out of someone's cup.

5. Keep a household disinfectant like Lysol or Clorox wipes on hand and use them to clean your doorknobs, remote controls, phones, keyboards etc.

6. Don't cuddle up to your BFF if they are ill! Symptoms of the flu include fever, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, chill and fatigue. Keep your distance and show your love by running errands for them.
