Hostos Community College turns 50 next April, but you may have noticed the party has already started. All throughout campus you will find celebratory signage and salutes to the College’s rich history. From beautiful archived photos that have been placed on elevators and walls, to large displays that are planned for the outside of our buildings, our Golden Anniversary is already shining bright.

Keep your eyes open for more as we approach this incredible milestone! And, feel free to show your campus pride by taking photos and sharing them on your social media pages with the hashtag #Hostos50!
