The UHV Student Government Association organized a group of students to help feed people in need during National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week. Students also took part in other activities during the week, including volunteering at the Food Bank of the Golden Crescent and making bags for the homeless. The university also hosted its annual Food Fight, during which students donated meals from their meal plans, which were converted into cash by the university to benefit the food bank or victims of the flooding in Louisiana.

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.
