UHV offers student just enough independence


 

Justin DavidsonFor Justin Davidson, a graduate of Alvin High School in Alvin, the University of Houston-Victoria will offer just enough independence.

 

“I want to get away from home but still be close to home,” he said. UHV was just the right distance from home and family.

 

He first heard about the university at a college event at his former high school and liked what he was told. “I liked that the freshman class was a smaller class, just 200 students,” he said. “I liked that it wasn't huge.”

 

He plans to major in education and become a high school history teacher and student council adviser after he graduates.

 

His extracurricular activities in high school included working as the public relations manager for student council, playing drums in the band, and serving as vice president for the senior class, and vice president and secretary for Student Crime Stoppers.

 

He's also a big fan of baseball, especially the Astros and Chicago Cubs, and singer/songwriter Taylor Swift.

 

 

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.
