CUNY Hostos Community College Reviews
Rating 3.77 out of 5 551 reviews
My online learning at first was weird since it is not the same as going to class but at the same time as I have a major in accounting I was used to doing all my homework online and I think this helped me a little more. All the classes that I take this fall 2020 semester do video lectures at the time that I was supposed to do the classes in people. My teachers are very attentive and always try to explain everything even online. My experience is good since at the beginning of the classes all my professors took the trouble to explain the whole process step by step. For me the most important thing is to study either in person or online.
y experience at Hostos is great and I learned a lot. It is a small college but you feel like a family as you get to know most of the students. I am very grateful to Hostos since in this college I was able to have a student job that helped me a lot to sustain myself as a student. Since I am a full time student all semesters and Hostos gave me the facility to study and work in my free time and between classes. I also learned so much I am very grateful since it was a bit difficult for me to adapt since I come from another country, but it is good to be in a place where they offer you all these opportunities with professors who help you to do well in all classes.
My professors have made the online schooling experience very easy and comfortable. These are hard times for everyone and we are all adjusting to these drastic changes and the school has made it a good experience for all of us.
I love the diversity in Hostos Community college. I really like how it represents people all around the world and how it’s very including of all races. I myself being a Hispanic female I have struggled to feel included in a lot of occasions. Hostos community college is a great representative of New York City, with people all around the world coming together with one common purpose to learn, process, and be someone in this world.
My online experience has been productive. The school utilizes the backboard platform to teach and I must say that the professor have been quite helpful in it's usage. They post videos demonstrating how to use their page and where to find information for the individual co0ntent area. In addition, they also have office hours where they help students to navigate the syllabus in order to keep you on tract. The lecturers all tend to make themselves available and you get that impression that even though the set strict rules for their area, they design their work load so that you can pass. I wish that I attended this college years ago.
All of my classes are online for this semester and only one teacher has posted or said anything come the first day the school started classes. So not only were the people in the offices slow and doing nothing, very little teachers have reached out at all.
I am an incoming freshman to this school and they have done nothing but cause me stress due to lack of my information that I have been sending them for months. The people in the offices at this school do not know the difference from their elbow and their butt. They DO NOT have their stuff together here.
This school has a lot of potentials to be way better but there are a lot of stops from the system and school professors. I wish it can have more budget for new materials and activities. better pay and change of some professor is also necessary.
There are some classes that I loved, and there are some I would not miss. I would like for the school to have more budge, connection, and spaces. fewer rules about the school, not been allowed to work with other colleges that's ridiculous.
it keeps glitching on me and it can be confusing trying to get where you want also trying to get the homework can also be a little stressful when you don't know where the professor posted it
The online course was a little bit tough at the beginning but with time, things ease up making the online course more convenient and more efficient.
Hostos college is a small college where students and teachers have good relationships. For me it is the best place to begin the college experience for a couples of reasons. First, advisors at Hostos college are ready and willing to helping students choose their major and registered their classes. The diversity of club opens a lot of opportunities to students to participate in school life as well as outside school matters. Students also have research opportunities and tutoring opportunities. The melting is Hostos college trade mark.
The online experience was weird for me because during the middle of the semester you know how we had to transfer from in person class to the online classes. To me it wasn't as good as I thought it would be. The reason is that I wasn't able to learn the things I want to learn, when I'm at home the laziness usually just come out of me. I prefer to actually be in class I would be able to concentrate there. The online classes for me was more of like the professors putting up the work on cunyfirst and the student having to complete whether it's a Google search or they actually try to do it but ending up with distractions. For example I was taking a spanish class and I didn't even bother with that class because you can simply just look it up online, even the professor said that it was just better to be there in person and absorb all the information that was being given to you. That was my first time doing online classes and I did not like it at all. It was more looking up stuff.
Due to covid 19, all my classes were switched on online classes. I was so scared and nervous because I never took an online class before I didn’t know what to expect. But, my lovely professors was there for me. Helped me through the crazy tough times and never gave up. It was actually such a great experience that I will do online classes again if I have to.
I love my college so much. Not only because back in the days people felt Hostos wasn’t going to last long because it was a college located in the South Bronx. Due to the fact that Bronx, Ny is a minority borough, many people feel that a college don’t belong here.. Well they were very wrong. This college is beautiful, very large, they have awesome proffers and I just love it there. This school ranked top 30 for the dental hygiene program. Which is the program that I will be entering. It’s not perfect but it’s really amazing, and I’m so honored to go there. The only thing I don’t like is the food but I’m a picky person. If there’s every a problem I have, they make sure to answer all my questions in detail. I was so scared starting college but this song made my experience worth it and fun.
Hostos Community College has been a life saver for me. As a returning student I decided to enroll in a community college and to my surprise the help and attention given to the students is fenomenal. I received so much useful information for my daily use to help me achieve student focus.
Since the remote distance learning we had no choice but to do online courses. Some professors were prepared for this others were not. Cant really rate the experience on this but I did very well nonetheless.
