College Anthem

" Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high;
Where knowledge is free;
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls;
Where words come out from the depth of truth;
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection;
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the dreary desert sand of dead habit;
Where the mind is led forward by thee into ever-widening thought and action
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake. "

I consider myself very fortunate since I was the first College captain of this esteemed institution. I'm associated with this institution since my 1st standard,which was then under the able leadership of Late Shri John Bosco sir.
In our college, The Principal and staff are not just the lecturers but also the best of friends and all-time mentors for a student's career. My batch brought 100% results in the very first year and I wish that my juniors take this college to the new heights. I'm really proud to be a Josephite.
