University of Houston-Victoria


Family Weekend

UHV Family Involvement ties students’ families to resources that aim to help students succeed academically and socially while in school. UHV also offers its students and their families the opportunity to connect with the university and its faculty and staff through an event called UHV Family Weekend, which is held each academic year. This event provides families ample interaction with UHV faculty and staff, university programs and Athletics in effort to build a sense of pride and support for UHV students.

Free t-shirts will be available to students and two of their family members, who register and attend Family Weekend. T-shirts are limited to the first 500 students and family members who register and attend. Students can register their families through the Family Weekend Registration Form. T-shirts will be available for pick-up at the President's Tailgate on Saturday.
