Kayla Anderson doesn't want to take college classes in an auditorium filled with 400 other students, and at the University of Houston-Victoria, she knows she won't.
"I like small schools because you can get one-on-one time with your professors," she said. "I think you learn better. You’re just more focused."
The small class sizes were just one of the factors that led Anderson, a recent graduate of Judson High School in Commerce, to pick UHV for her degree. She'll join other members of the university's FIRST 200 this fall.
She first heard about UHV from a recruiter who came to her school and told members of the school’s Advancement Via Individual Determination college preparatory program about the university. Anderson was impressed with UHV’s affordability and how quality education is stressed at the university.
School is important to Anderson, who plans on getting her education degree and eventually wants to obtain her master’s and doctoral degrees. She would like to teach high school students after she graduates.
Anderson was involved with cross country and track at Judson High School her freshman and sophomore years and cheerleading her last two years.
“I’m really looking forward to just being on my own and growing into my own self at UHV,” she said.
