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 since 1973 in Victoria, Texas, offers courses leading to more than 80 academic programs in the schools of Arts & Sciences; Business Administration; and Education, Health Professions & Human Development.
