Erayna Huston originally was interested in attending a large university in the fall but then she had second thoughts.

“It just seems like I’ll have better opportunities at the University of Houston-Victoria because of the smaller classes,” said Huston, a senior at Karen Wagner High School in San Antonio.

 

Huston plans on attending UHV in the fall as one of the university’s FIRST 200. She wants to get a business degree so that she eventually can open a restaurant or other small business.

 

In high school, Huston was a member of Junior ROTC for four years and was secretary of her junior class and treasurer of her senior class. For the past two years, she has participated in a college preparatory program at her high school and has been in the San Antonio Police Department Police Explorers program.

 

“I’m excited to see UHV’s new dorms,” she said.

 

 

 

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.
