UHD Celebrates High School Seniors On GenTX Decision Day May 2

The University of Houston-Downtown is celebrating high school seniors who have set their sights on earning a college degree and – hopefully – on becoming future Gators on GenTX Decision Day Monday, May 2. 

UHD and other universities and colleges across Texas have come together to applaud students’ successes and support these individuals as they pursue higher education opportunities.

UHD is spreading the word this week about GenTX via social media – join us on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram and send your own congratulatory messages using the hashtag #GenTXUHD.
