We are thrilled to share Hostos was ranked the best community college in New York State by Stacker, a data-driven media company.

Stacker’s list was published on May 21 and utilized statistics compiled by Niche, a company that uses data-set analysis and reviews to help people research U.S. colleges, neighborhoods, companies, and more. For their ranking of the “2019 Best Community Colleges in America,” Niche looked at academic, financial, and student life data from the U.S. Department of Education, as well as self-reported student and alumni surveys.

We are grateful for the recognition and to our students, alumni, faculty, staff, and extended Hostos community for their contributions to the College. You make the College what it is today and what it will become tomorrow.
