A meningitis scare is spanning both coasts on college campuses.

Officials are urging the University of California at Santa Barbara to suspend events after an outbreak of meningitis.

This is happening just weeks after a similar outbreak at Princeton in New Jersey.

Four students at UC Santa Barbara have come down with a rare strain of the potential deadly disease.

Students on campus are being told to stay away from parties and social events to keep the outbreak from spreading.
