It is our way to celebrate the accomplishments of our alumni
On Sunday, October 4, 2009, Eugenio María de Hostos Community College expects to welcome hundreds of alumni, their families and friends, and other supporters to its Third Annual Homecoming.

"I am delighted to invite everyone to El Reencuentro," said Dr. Félix V. Matos Rodríguez, who took office as president of Hostos on July 1, 2009. "Headed by Nydia Edgecombe, our Director of Alumni Relations, an enthusiastic committee of past and present students, faculty and staff members, and other volunteers is preparing to greet our guests from local communities and throughout the United States."
"We are very excited about the concept of El Reencuentro," said Edgecombe.
