The HACU, U.S. Army Tour at the University of Houston

Students from 11 Houston-area schools were among those participating in the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) and U.S. Army University Tour, that took place at the University of Houston.

The HACU/U.S. Army University Tour program provides high school students the opportunity to participate - some for the first time - in campus tours to learn more about pathways to higher education. In addition to a daily tour of the university campus, students are attending workshops on admission, financial aid, campus resources and educational opportunities offered through the U.S. Army.
