Hostos’ Accelerated Study in Associate Programs (ASAP) joined other CUNY campuses to celebrate Spirit Day on March 22.

The Bridge was packed with students, who received information about the University-wide program that helps students earn an associate’s degree within three years. ASAP provides personalized advisement, career counseling, tutoring, waivers for tuition and fees, MTA MetroCards, and additional financial assistance to defray the cost of textbooks.

Administrators and staff from Hostos’s ASAP Program, including Director Laura McGowan, were on hand to give out information, food, prizes and raffle tickets.
