el Coquí, Volume 9, Number 2, November 1978

El Coquí was a college newspaper published monthly by the Office of College Relations and Development at Hostos Community College. This November 1978 issue featured stories including an announcement that funding for the renovation of 500 Grand Concourse was finally approved, an article about how the interest in Hostos Community College dramatically increased amongst high school students, and a discussion about the reaction to debates regarding curriculum decisions.

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 to allow for the expansion of Hostos. However, the 500 Grand Concourse building needed renovations to be useable and the college was denied the funds necessary to prepare and occupy this 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 in the South Bronx.
