CUNY Hostos is a small CUNY school with a diverse student population. Many of the students are the first in their family to attend college, & as such, there is a lot of pride in the students who attend Hostos & a deep desire to excel. Hostos endeavors to help them do so with in-school tutors & a writing center (all free!) for anyone who needs a little help. There's also a computer lab, with about a hundred & fifty br& new terminals.

The classes range from the basics, English, History, Psychology & Math to Music, Nursing, Computer Science/Gaming, & Photography--you name it & you can find it here! The professors are, in my opinion, wonderful. Some are tough, some are fun, some will be a little of both.

The campus at present is small, & easy to navigate. The neighborhood isn't much, but there are plenty of places to grab lunch. There are even a few green spots to eat outside.

I'm in the Nursing program, & I'm a tutor in the Writing Center. If you enroll, drop by & see me!

Just about everything that happens in Hostos Community College, (HCC), was fun, enjoyable, and delightful. The curriculum at HCC was and i'm sure they still are challenging to take on and gratifying upon successful completion of a course. There are a considerable number of events that take place during a single semester that's offered by different departments. for instance, the English department enjoys a poetry competition every semester. Students and guests can enjoy a play performed by students. The Clubs are vast and populated. And the library is clean, quiet, and well staffed. There is so much that is being left out from this review that it's almost criminal. As a criticism i'll say that the elevators need an overhaul and the floors need to become moving sidewalks.
Hello, I️ have been attending Hostos for the past 2 years and let me tell you I️ LOVE this community college, I️ met people from every country, I️ learned a lot and grew as a person. I️ started working as a student aid also know as work study and after 2 semester my manager gave me the opportunity to apply for a position as a college lab technician and cuny gave me the job I️ felt and feel blessed and thankful for this opportunity. Fall 2017 was my last semester here, I️ will transfer to another college to do my bachelor I️ don’t know what I️ want to be yet but I️ will figure it out. Honestly I️ love Hostos and I’m really happy that I️ made the right decision by applying to this school. Sorry if I misspell something, English is not my first language. Also they helped me improve my writing and reading skills because I️ only have four years living in the United States. Thank youu and god bless you all
