UH RGV Admissions Office Celebrating Success with Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony

UH Administrators, Alums, Educators Set to Attend Event Feb. 11 in McAllen, Texas

The University of Houston seeks out Cougar-quality students from across the state and around the world. Among the areas it is attracting future Coogs is the Lone Star State’s Rio Grande Valley (RGV).

Through the UH Rio Grande Valley Admissions Office in McAllen, Texas, the University is connecting with prospective students throughout the state’s southern region.

On Feb. 11, UH community members, alums, area educators and constituents will celebrate this facility’s progress during an official ribbon cutting ceremony. The event will kick off at 10 a.m. in the UH RGV Admissions Office (612 Nolana Avenue). A reception will immediately follow this event at Lone Star National Bank (520 E. Nolana Avenue).

Among the guests scheduled to attend this event are UH President Renu Khator; Paula Myrick Short, UH senior vice president for Academic Affairs and provost; Eloise Dunn Stuhr, UH vice president for University Advancement; and Darrin Hall, UH executive director of Governmental Relations.

The UH RGV Admissions Office opened in July 2013 and is the University’s first facility dedicated to serving prospective students in the state’s southern region. Staff members in the RGV office provide admissions support and guide students through the financial aid application process. The office serves students in RGV’s largest counties – Starr, Cameron and Hidalgo – and complements two additional Texas recruiting/admissions initiatives in Austin and Dallas.
