CUNY Hostos Community College Reviews

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!

Hostos is a surprisingly well equipped community college. There are many resources available to students to help them succeed, and I think that's wonderful. The HALC (Hostos Academic Learning Center) is a walk-in tutoring center available to all students. There are various computer labs with excellent desktops/macs available for use. There are many other services like guidance counseling and single stop to help students with external struggles as well. I enjoy everything but a good amount of professors. It's been a positive experience overall.
I went back to school starting here and transferring to one of the best business programs in CUNY (Zicklin). Hostos left me prepared and got me back into the flow of school. The profs in the business dept knew my name, the work was challenging and I went to my senior college knowing what to expect. The food is eh but cheap. The students, i would say 97% are there to work and take it very seriously; something i did not expect because I had a different idea of junior college before I actually went. The area is very accessible but can be more on the dangerous side; im from harlem and there were a few days where i saw some bad stuff (every single incident happened in the train station). Above all, i saved nearly 10K, was well prepared for my senior college and the profs are there to help. Graduated with my A.S in Business & im almost done with the BBA in accounting. I reccomend this school to everyone i know looking to make the return to school.
