UHV students clean up Mustang Island beach

Beach Cleanup 2019
University of Houston-Victoria students pick up trash in September during a beach cleanup trip to Mustang Island near Port Aransas. Twenty-five students spent the morning picking up trash along the beach, then spent time relaxing in the sun and surf. Some community members saw the students cleaning up the beach and were inspired to join them, said Troy Vanicek, a UHV Student Life coordinator.

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.
