“The mentoring work gives me a chance to tell them about my experiences and to encourage them to take school seriously,” said Fraguada, a senior at Scarborough High School in Houston.

Fraguada is accepted as one of UHV’s FIRST 200 freshmen and said she learned about the university through a friend.

 “I like that it’s not that far from home, and it’s less expensive than other schools,” she said.

The University of Houston-Victoria, located in the heart of the Coastal Bend region, offers courses leading to 70 bachelor’s and master’s degree programs and concentrations in the schools of Arts & Sciences; Business Administration; and Education, Health Professions & Human Development. 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.
