UHV students lend a hand in flood-damaged Louisiana

Anna Tamez, a University of Houston-Victoria sophomore from Laredo, removes flood-damaged items inside a house in Dehnam Springs, La. Tamez was one of 28 UHV students and four staff members who spent Labor Day weekend assisting flood victims in and around Baton Rouge, La. Often having to wear masks, safety glasses and gloves, the UHV group cleaned out debris from four flooded homes. Students also visited with homeowners and neighbors to learn more about the families they assisted.

The University of Houston-Victoria, located in the heart of the Coastal Bend region, offers courses leading to more than 65 bachelor’s and master’s degree programs and concentrations in the schools of Arts & Sciences, Business Administration, Education & Human Development, and Nursing. UHV provides face-to-face classes at its Victoria campus as well as teaching sites in Fort Bend and Harris counties, and online classes that students can take from anywhere. Since its founding in 1973, UHV has provided students with a quality university education from excellent faculty at an affordable price.
