Top 5 Events of 2014
 
#5... Pool BBQ
Villas residents mingled in the sunshine around the pool while enjoying BBQ burgers, hotdogs and veggie burgers in the kick off to the Villas Week of Welcome! 
#4... Decorate Your Own Cupcakes
Residents crafted culinary works of art at the Villas Cupcake Decorating program. It was a great chance to interact and get to know other residents while enjoying their tasty masterpieces!
#3... Villas Open Mic Night
Residents from all three Trop student communities meet each other at Tropicana Villas and shared great music, poetry, and stand up comedy. Its always great to see all of the amazing talent we have in our Trop communities!  
#2... Villas Friendsgiving Dinner
The villas community came together to celebrate a traditional American Thanksgiving. Dinner was catered by Bon Appetit and featured all the classics, such as turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, and pumpkin pie! Everyone gathered around the pool and said what they were thankful for, which made the event all the more special.
#1... Quad Wars!
In one of the biggest events of the year, Trop residents from all communities faced off against rival Quads. Battling for glory and the coveted Quad Wars trophy, residents rallied together to prove themselves in different competitions. Tug of war, Pool Joust, "How Well Do You Know Your Roommate"trivia, and Dodge Ball challenged Quads to work together. St. Croix Quad from Tropicana Gardens won this time, but they better watch out! They'll have to defend their title during Quad Wars, Round 2, coming in Spring 2015!

There's plenty more planned for 2015! We're all looking forward to a fun and successful Winter and Spring term, and we're excited that you'll be a part of it! Thank you for helping make Fall 2014 vibrant, fun, and memorable.
 
Happy New Year!

Testimonials

  • In addition to all the fun I had living at the Villas, something that I also think is important no matter where I live is customer service, and the relationship a tenant has with the property manager. Whenever I had a problem with anything, like the water not running right, or being locked out, there was always someone around or someone I could call to help me out, and they were always fast about it, which I really appreciated. Overall, living at the Villas was an awesome experience.

  • We really had a welcoming, community feeling to our building which made it that much better to come back to every day after class or work. The Villas at Tropicana has really felt like a home to me and I can't wait to come back for another year.

  • I loved spending my senior year at UCSB in a nice apartment that was in Isla Vista but wasn't submersed in the party atmosphere.
