“It just seems like I’ll have better opportunities at the University of Houston-Victoria because of the smaller classes,” said Huston, a senior at Karen Wagner High School in San Antonio.

Huston plans on attending UHV in the fall as one of the university’s FIRST 200. She wants to get a business degree so that she eventually can open a restaurant or other small business.

In high school, Huston was a member of Junior ROTC for four years and was secretary of her junior class and treasurer of her senior class. For the past two years, she has participated in a college preparatory program at her high school and has been in the San Antonio Police Department Police Explorers program.

“I’m excited to see UHV’s new dorms,” she said.

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.
