Freshman Brochure 2016-2017 - 4
Get your degree while you enjoy living on a growing university campus. You
can establish your independence in Victoria but still go to a relative's birthday
celebration on the weekend. Victoria is a safe, welcoming city of 65,000 people,
and it's conveniently located just two hours from Austin, Houston, San Antonio
and Corpus Christi. With popular shopping, restaurants, events and festivals in
town, Victoria has plenty for you to do when it's time for fun. Did we mention
you'll be just 30 minutes away from the beach?
Get a kick out of life
Have fun going through a haunted house, celebrating
homecoming, roller skating to '80s music or visiting a carnival
booth. UHV Student Life hosted more than 175 activities for
students in 2015-2016. You also can join one of 30 established
student organizations, start your own, or make a difference
by volunteering for community service projects. Cheer on
UHV's baseball, softball, soccer and golf teams against Red
River Conference rivals or participate in intramural basketball,
volleyball, soccer or flag football.
