Jaguar Journey Welcome Weekend

 Welcome Weekend

August 20-22, 2021

Students participating in Jaguar Journey, 2019-08-23

At Jaguar Journey Welcome Weekend, you will be introduced to campus life at UHV. The weekend is packed with activities that will help you acclimate to campus, acquire important information about services designed to help you succeed, and help get you acquainted with the City of Victoria. Jaguar Journey will be your best chance to meet other incoming students and learn what it means to be a Jaguar. Don’t miss it!

Jaguar Journey is held in Victoria the weekend before classes begin for the fall semester and is required for all first year students as part of their UNIV course. Transfer students will have other opportunities such as our ROAR Transfer Orientation or the Virtual Experience to engage in, but are also welcome to participate in Jaguar Journey if they desire. Incoming first year students are automatically registered for Jaguar Journey. If transfer students are interested in participating, they should contact to register.

Due to the impacts of COVID-19, and in order to protect the health and safety of the entire Jaguar family, Jaguar Journey will be held in a hybrid modality this year. There will be activities throughout the weekend that are held in person, while others will take place virtually online. Incoming first year students will be emailed participation instructions, as well as have them provided to them during the housing move in process. See our what to expect webpage for more information.
