El Coquí, Volume 8, Number 3, December 1977

El Coquí was a college newspaper published monthly by the Office of College Relations and Development at Hostos Community College. This December 1977 issue featured stories describing President Jimmy Carter’s recent visit to the South Bronx as well as a discussion of Bankers Trust intention to purchase bonds in order to finance the renovation of the 500 Grand Concourse building.

By 1977, the third part of the campaign to save Hostos Community College had picked up momentum. Having extremely poor facilities, the college had acquired a second building across the street from its original location that would allow Hostos to expand. However, the 500 Grand Concourse building needed renovations to be useable but the college had been denied the funds necessary to prepare and occupy their second building. A fresh wave of organizing by students and faculty drove efforts to enable Hostos to continue to be a hub of opportunity for residents of the South Bronx.
