Stephanie Hermes has it on good authority that the University of Houston-Victoria is a quality university: Her sister, Jaime Hermes, is a UHV alumna who now works as a pre-kindergarten teacher in Schulenburg.

“She told me that the classes are small, and the professors are really nice,” said Hermes, who recently graduated from Hallettsville High School.

Hermes attended UHV’s first-ever freshman orientation on June 23 and plans on following in her sister’s footsteps at the university. She hopes to one day become a teacher.

Hermes played the clarinet in her high school band for four years and was captain of the color guard for two years. She also was involved with the Science Club, National Honor Society, Spanish National Honor Society, and Family, Career and Community Leaders of America.

“I’m looking forward to meeting everyone in the fall,” 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.
