"It was away from home, and it was affordable," said Aguilar, who recently graduated from Southside High School in San Antonio. "I want to get the whole university experience."

Aguilar is interested in taking UHV business classes and eventually would like to open her own business, possibly a café.

While in high school, Aguilar was a member of the National Honor Society for a year and the band all four years. She plays the flute and piccolo.

"I'm really looking forward to being away from home on my own and meeting new people next year," she said.

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.
