ROAR Orientation Sessions

LogoOrientation is an opportunity for individuals to begin to express their roar at the University of Houston-Victoria (UHV). It is an event specifically designed for new college students who will be attending UHV and want to discover everything our institution has to offer. At ROAR Orientation, students will learn about campus resources and opportunities, and will be prepared to acclimate and rise to success at UHV. We'll give you all the information you need to feel confident for your first day of class. Orientation Leaders, faculty, and staff members will guide students through this experience.

ROAR Orientation is typically an event that is held in person on the Victoria campus or Katy Instructional Site. However, due to COVID-19, all ROAR Orientation sessions will be held virtually online for Summer 2021.
