UHV welcomes students back to campus with week of activities

UHV students celebrate the start of the fall semester with Welcome Week activities from Aug. 26 to Friday, including First Day Photos with jaX, left, and Splatterbeat. This year, the university used “There’s No Place Like UHV,” a theme based on the “Wizard of Oz” movie, for Welcome Week activities. Students also participated in events that included a Part-Time Job Fair, movie night, welcome back BBQ and Desserts Around the World. Each event was hosted by a UHV department, and many were scheduled to answer students’ questions and help them settle into the new school year.
