We have a block of 15 rooms (trying to get more) at a group rate of $99/night at the Tropicana, 421 NW Riverside Dr, Evansville, IN 47708, starting on Tuesday, March 25. When you call for your reservations, you must let them know it is for the Southern Connecticut State University block of rooms.  Telephone number is (812) 433-4000.
The hotel is 1.29 miles' driving distance from the Ford Center, and a shorter direct walk (it appears so on the map).  A casino and five restaurants are attached to the hotel, so you will be able to have some fun during down times.

Pre-Game Activities:

We have planned a pre-game breakfast for alumni, parents, coaches, etc., for Wednesday and have our tentative plans in place for Thursday and Saturday as well.  Please email Michelle Johnston or call (203) 392-6501 before Monday if you are planning to join us for the pre-game meals, so we may give a number to the catering staff.  The breakfast will be complimentary.
