Campus Culture

The campus has its unique set of characteristics, values, traditions, customs, habits, attitudes and language giving primacy for God in life through Christian way of relating with God and one another. This defines the identity of the institute with a distinct campus culture.

The college strives continuously to become more God-centered, self-driven, trust filled and free, greener and socially conscious campus.

 

GOD - CENTERED

We have a world that promotes primarily material welfare, turning a deaf ear to the voice of God in creation. We are living in a general culture that gradually eclipses the presence of Divine. God is invoked only for one’s needs and emergencies.

Faith in God : by believing in the existence of God who is the Creator…
Love : by sincere love of the neighbor, especially those in need…
Spirituality : by promoting inter-relatedness and unity…
Morality : by forming consciences sensitive to right and wrong…

 

SELF DRIVEN

People get used to life of dependency. Early in life we depend in our parents and later as we grow, on our elders and on the institutions. We find it difficult to move out of such an attitude of dependency. We need to move towards self-driven attitude.

Self-Driven : by taking responsibility, sense of belonging, taking initiative…
Self-Reliance : by inculcating hard-work, earn-and-learn programs…
Time-Consciousness : by conscious time management, punctuality…
Health Awareness : by faithful daily physical exercise, attention paid to one’s health…

 

GREENER

Yelagiri Hills is becoming polluted due to the onslaught of tourists. There are more than 60 restaurants, lodges and hotels on this hill-station. There is water scarcity. When we walk on the side roads, we see so much of plastic thrown around.

Nature Friendly : by making the campus green by planting of more trees…
Nature Responsible : by sparingly using natural resources like water, firewood…
Life of Simplicity : by avoiding the use of plastics and other harmful wastes…
Nature Sensitive : by bringing awareness to people and through action plan…

 

TRUST FILLED AND FREE

In a situation of fear hardly an individual grows to be a mature human being. Persons need an ambient that is trust-filled where they can express their views freely and get the assistance for the personal problems from their elders.

Trust-filled : by evoking confidence and freedom to express grievances…
Group Activities : by a sincere participation in group activities…
Sense of Respect : by respecting people and upholding human dignity…
Sense of Fellowship : by fostering in us a sense of fraternity and equality…

 

SOCIALLY CONSCIOUS

We are social beings. In a world rampant with individualism, we have to inculcate in us a sense of responsibility towards each other. Our actions mutually influence each other. We need to be conscious of this social responsibility.

Socially Conscious : by encouraging reach-out programs and social action…
Gender-Sensitivity : by having respect for all, especially women in the campus…
Disciplined Life : by inculcating in students the need for a disciplined life…
Sense of Equality : by taking people equals in our dealing with them…
