For 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.
