Event Round Up
Bubble Soccer

What a better way to destress from finals than to play some good ‘ol bubble soccer. TDN residents got to battle it out on the field and relax.
Air Hockey Tournament

This program enabled residents to expose their competitive spirit! Residents were able to enjoy doughnuts and milk as complimentary snacks during the program. They all seemed to eagerly want the top prize: the $30 gift card to Starbucks!
Shamrock Shakes

On Friday night, Tropicana Del Norte residents took a break from their finals studies to come celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and enjoy a delicious Shamrock Shake! Milkshakes of many different flavors were served while residents were taught about the tradition and origins of this holiday.
Ping Pong Tournament

Table Tennis fanatics came out to compete in a fierce tournament! They battled their way to the top! Our Victors were Sebastian (2nd) and Lovedeep (1st)! Food and snacks were surveyed and spectators got to enjoy competitive matches.
Elote Man

Isla Vista’s famous Elote Man visited Tropicana Del Norte to give our residents a final’s week treat! Who knew he started accepting Venmo?! Awesome!

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.
