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!

Choosing to attend Hostos Community College was viewed as a poor decision for a student who had a high GPA. I was looked down upon by most of my teachers, mentors, and some peers but attending Hostos Community College has allowed me to come across impactful opportunities. Not only does Hostos provide students with a vast amount of possibilities, but they also offer staff members who genuinely care about their student's success beyond Hostos. Becoming a Hostos student has given me the chance to become an ASAP student which to me is an extensive family. The ASAP program at Hostos not only helps their students but advocates, and instill knowledge of how to function in the world to their students.
I have just finished the Spring term at this college. I have really not yet entered into extra activities besides classes, not that the college does not have them. There are many of them. The three Professors that I have had so far who have been very professional, and went the extra mile for the students. The cost of schooling is great. As far as people thinking of going to this college, and is worried about security, let me put your mind to ease. There are lots of security personnel there, mostly off-duty cops. There is also a Hospital and some great shopping right there. The train and bus stop right there. It's right over the bridge from New York City. The college sometimes gives you the runaround in order to get things done, but if you persist you will get the job done. The college offers a few many two years program. Hope to see you there in the Fall.
