Business and soccer.

That’s what led Jorge Macias, a recent graduate of John Jay High School in San Antonio, to join the FIRST 200 freshmen at the University of Houston-Victoria in the fall.

 

He first heard about UHV when a recruiter came to his school to share with his classmates. What the recruiter said caught Macias’ attention.

 

“It was awesome. UHV had everything that I wanted,” he said.

 

Macias plans to eventually earn his Master of Business Administration degree and hopes to play for the new UHV Jaguars men’s soccer team.

 

“I’ve been playing soccer since I was 7 years old, and I want to keep playing it,” he said.

 

Macias played soccer and basketball for his high school and was a member of the National Honors Society.

 

 

The University of Houston-Victoria, located in the heart of the Coastal Bend region, offers courses leading to more than 65 bachelor’s and master’s degree programs and concentrations in the schools of Arts & Sciences, Business Administration, Education & Human Development, and Nursing. UHV provides face-to-face classes at its Victoria campus as well as teaching sites in Fort Bend, Harris and Montgomery counties, and online classes that students can take from anywhere. Since its founding in 1973, UHV has provided students with a quality university education from excellent faculty at an affordable price.
