I am a University of Houston-Victoria alumnus who recently got married. How do I update my contact information?

Congratulations on your recent wedding. The University of Houston-Victoria Alumni Association has made it easy for former students to update their directory information online at

Those who update their information before April 15 will be entered into a drawing for a new iPad. Just log in at and add or update your name, address, phone and email address to be included in the drawing. It does not cost anything.

The association will use this information to keep you informed about important alumni news. Your information also will be part of an alumni database in which fellow alumni can search for each other.

While you're on UHVConnect, you'll notice that there is much more to the website than just updating your information. The website is the best way for UHV alumni to stay up to date about association news and events. You also will find information about events and other alumni benefits, including networking opportunities and access to continuing education.

Association members can join special interest groups, read and post comments to blogs and purchase UHV merchandise. Under "Class Notes," you can announce important events, such as a recent wedding, job promotion or birth of a child.

UHVConnect has a job section where alumni can find out about available jobs in Texas. In addition, the association is working with UHV Career Services to connect alumni business owners with current students searching for jobs. Recruiters can go to to submit a job posting and look through resumes.

Alumni also are encouraged to stay in contact through social media on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.

To update your information or learn more about the association, visit or contact Natalia Ruiz at or 361-570-4812.
