On behalf of every member of #JAXNATION, we are excited you have decided to enroll at the University of Houston-Victoria (UHV). As you begin to make the transition into college, it's important to learn and hear from those who have been in your shoes before. Our various ROAR Orientation sessions, Jaguar Journey Welcome Weekend, and other programs will provide that opportunity and more! 

Our 2023 ROAR Orientation sessions will be held in-person and virtually online, depending on the which one you are attending. For more information, visit our frequently asked questions page or email orientation@uhv.edu.
