Tropicana will be seeking upbeat, reliable, and upstanding individuals to fill the Resident Assistant (RA) positions for the 2016 - 2017 academic year. RAs get to know their residents, build community, plan events, and be a part of a great team that provides peer guidance here at our building by supporting academic pursuits and positive social interaction.

Introducing... Tropicana Villas
Picture Yourself at Tropicana Villas Next Year!
Tropicana Villas, situated three blocks from UCSB, five blocks from the beach, and one block from the direct bus route to SBCC, caters specifically to continuing UCSB and SBCC 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), 10 & 12 month leases 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, 27-seat movie theater, massage chairs and bed, and tanning booth.

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 2016-2017 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.
