Family Weekend

UHV Parent 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 fall semester. This event provides families ample interaction with UHV faculty and staff, university programs, and the Victoria community in effort to build a sense of pride and support for UHV students.

For more information on Family Weekend, contact Hilary Kofron at (361) 485-4409.
