Event Round Up

Tropicana Gardens residents celebrated the 2016 – 2017 school year at the
6th annual TrOscars superlative award ceremony! It was a time for residents to join together in the Rec Room to reflect on the year, enjoy delicious desserts, thank the Tropicana Student Organization for all the great work they’ve done this year, and award Trop Superlatives! Residents were nominated for superlative awards such as Cutest Couple, Trop Star, and many others!

Check out the end of the year video below and reflect on all the great times we’ve had together this year!

Ocean enthusiasts enjoyed sunny Santa Barbara by kayaking near the harbor! What a lovely day to relax and have fun in the sun!

One of the happiest programs of the year! Adventure seekers spent the day exploring Disneyland and California Adventure!
Pot Party

Residents were given the chance to take their own little clay pot and plant a plant inside it, then decorate it and take it home with them.

A festive day was had as Tropsters learned more about the Indian festival, Holi, and how it represents the departure of winter and arrival of spring. Everyone got to put on white t-shirts and given color packets so they could participate UCSB’s own Holi festival!
Spa Night

Everyone needs to take some time for themselves. The Trop community took a break from their studies to enjoy massages, eyebrow threading, henna, facials, braiding, manicures and more!

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.
