Boricua College Chorus
A permanent, volunteer choral group under the College’s auspices was established in 1985 by Abraham Lind Oquendo.

The Chorus is composed of singers of diverse ethnic backgrounds representing the multi-cultural/multi-racial makeup of New York City. Membership is open to students, staff, and alumni of Boricua College, and the community-at-large.

While the scope of musical presentations is universal, the Chorus emphasizes the dissemination, development and nurturing of Puerto Rican and Hispanic music and composers, utilizing an international repertoire of varied styles and languages.

The Chorus performs extensively throughout the New York metropolitan area, including Carnegie Hall, and has collaborated with the Bronx Arts Ensemble Orchestra on numerous occasions. The Chorus has received numerous awards and is widely praised. [Click here to see Latin ACE Awards Letter]

Annual Poetry Series
Under the direction of Dr. Myrna Nieves, the Poetry Series was inaugurated in 1988 and is held four times a year. The College sponsors poetry readings by prominent Puerto Rican and Latino poets and writers, followed by discussion with invited critics.

Students and community members are encouraged to participate in this series that promotes Puerto Rican and Latino literature and cultural heritage.

Puerto Rican Folk Art Festival (Artesanía Puertorriqueña)
Boricua College has institutionalized the Annual Puerto Rican Craft Fair, celebrated during the month of November at the Brooklyn Campus.

This event is part of celebrating Puerto Rican Heritage month. Puerto Rican and other Hispanic artisans come and present their craft. The College believes that, “the artisan is the soul of a people and it culture.”

The Galerías de Arte
The Galerías de Arte are located at each of the College’s Campuses buildings. The Galerías de Arte provide an indispensable showcase for emerging and professional Puerto Ricans and other Hispanic artists to present their work.

The Galerias present exhibits, discussions, workshops and conferences for students and the community.

Upward Bound (TRIO) Program (Boricua College / Louis D. Brandeis High School)
The Boricua College Upward Bound (TRIO) Program provides fundamental support to Louis D. Brandeis High School students in their preparation for college entrance. The program provides opportunities for participants to succeed in their precollege performance and ultimately in their higher education pursuits. The Boricua College Upward Bound (TRIO) Program serves high school students exclusively from Louis D. Brandeis High School. Students must be low-income families; and/or students from families in which neither parent holds a bachelor's degree. The goal of Upward Bound is to increase the rate at which participants complete secondary education and enroll in and graduate from institutions of postsecondary education.

Boricua College Upward Bound (TRIO) Program provides academic instruction in mathematics, laboratory sciences, composition, literature, and foreign languages. Tutoring, counseling, mentoring and cultural enrichment are offered by to all students in the Boricua College Upward Bound (TRIO) Program.

Workforce One (Boricua College / Upper Manhattan Workforce 1 Career Center)
In the spirit of engaging community organizations and helping students obtain high-quality, well-paying employment, Boricua College has partnered with the Upper Manhattan Workforce 1 Career Center, operated by Seedco.
