Eric Horelka is looking forward to doing something different in the fall when he’ll be part of the FIRST 200 at the University of Houston-Victoria.


“It will be a whole new experience with new classes and new people,” said Horelka, who recently graduated from Memorial High School in Victoria.


Since Horelka lives in Victoria, he already was familiar with UHV before he applied. In fact, his family has friends who are employed at the university.


Horelka played baseball for two years in high school before serving as the team manager his junior year. He also participated in Future Farmers of America and was a bull rider for an area rodeo team made up of high school students.


He plans on majoring in biology at UHV and hopes to eventually become a dentist.



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.
