The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley and its medical school are poised to become an internationally recognized epicenter for the research and treatment of diabetes and obesity.
The UT System Board of Regents has officially and unanimously approved “Vaqueros” as the athletic nickname for UTRGV. The board also gave the nod to using blue, green and orange as the colors for the new university.
