Hostos Community College is a great Campus to attend. They have a variety of majors, and many resources are available to students attending this campus. Tuition cost is fair, and they also have scholarships available within the college you can check in with the scholarships office, and they will assist you. They also have a financial aid office and financial aid micro lab for students who need assistance with applying for FAFSA and TAP application. The professors are great and very understanding, so don't be afraid to connect with your professors. Get involved in extracurricular activities like joining a club and participating in programs. It will help you gain experience, and you will learn so much when you're involved in campus events.

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.
