Hostos Goes Electronic on the Grand Concourse

How busy is the intersection of 149th Street and Grand Concourse? Extremely: it’s estimated to be transversed about 26 million times a year. And from now on, passers-by will have even more reason to think of Eugenio María de Hostos Community College than before.

Thanks to Washington Mutual, a national financial services company that dates back to 1889, an electronic bulletin board has been installed on the second story of the College’s Allied Health Building. Measuring 17 by 8 feet, the board will enliven the busy intersection and assist the College in spreading news of its programs and special events to the community.

Accepting the gift, College President Dolores Fernandez said, “Hostos recently entered into a community partnership with Washington Mutual, and the interaction between our institutions has been extremely productive.” Donna Wilson, a senior vice president at the firm, said on the occasion of the unveiling that the project was “one of many successful partnerships we hope to bring to the Bronx.”
