Honors students share research during colloquium

Honors Colloquium
University of Houston-Victoria honors student Ashley Nanton, of LaVernia, gives her presentation “Gravitational Effects on Measurements of Arterial Stiffness” during the university’s biannual Honors Colloquium earlier this month. The Honors Program gives students opportunities to work closely with UHV faculty, and the Honors Colloquium allows them to discuss their research publicly. Nanton, a recent UHV biology graduate, collaborated on her project with assistant professor Daniel White’s research team and investigated the possible effects of gravity on measurements of arterial health and blood pressure.

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. UHV provides face-to-face classes at its Victoria campus, as well as an instructional site in Katy, Texas, and online classes that students can take from anywhere. UHV supports the American Association of State Colleges and Universities Opportunities for All initiative to increase awareness about state colleges and universities and the important role they have in providing a high-quality and accessible education to an increasingly diverse student population, as well as contributing to regional and state economic development.
