Fr. S M S Stephenson
Dear Friends, at the very outset let me extend a hearty welcome on behalf of St. Xavier’s College, Bangalore.
As we know, we live in a world of competitions, especially in the world of Education at a time when Science and Technology reached its paramountcy. At this juncture, unless we impart quality education to the young aspirants to acquire current developments in the realm of “knowledge” in the field of Technology, they will not be able to contribute something good to the coming generations. Keeping in mind this vision and aspect, the Founders of this college have devised the curriculum by which, the student can acquire a credible position in the present most competitive world without trailing behind. This is the promise we give to the most suitable students, provided he/she is committed to undergo rigorous training under the able guidance of our predominant Faculty, led by Dr. Madhu Prabakaran , who imparts the knowledge he has acquired, in a more holistic way.
This Institute, in fact is the realization of the long cherishing dreams of a young group of well talented men who really dedicated their might to bring up a living monument to their dreams. If that has to become a success, the student who joins us has to empathise, by leaving behind all other notions in which he/she has been nurtured. They have to inculcate the new system and the mode of operation in which the College is moving forward. They are supposed to get themselves familiar with the new situation, which will bring them a shining future only. And, we wish the same to each and every student joins this college, without any disparity. We impart Education without Prejudice.
A most important factor, we have set a beautiful campus with a serene atmosphere for the students, where he/she can learn and study many things together with the curriculum, in a most tranquil and peaceful atmosphere of a Holy Monastery or Seminary; and we are proud to say that, this exactly is the type of matrix we offer your wards to mould their character and the environment we have set for education and all the more to develop their Personality.
Therefore, on behalf of the Management, the Faculty and all other staff, I earnestly request you all who come across this writings of mine, come, perceive, experience and decide where exactly your ward has to learn things for his/her better future. Before concluding my letter, let me appraise one more thing, “discipline is the salt of life”, to be more specific, we shall not have any compromise to the discipline.
Wishing you all the happy greetings on behalf of the Management and all the staff including our Faculty.
