Mr. Biju Joseph

Dear Students, Alumni, Colleagues, and friends

Greetings from St Pius X College Rajapuram

I am extremely delighted to welcome you to St. Pius X College Rajapuram, an abode of knowledge built by the fore-fathers of the Arch Eparchy of Kottayam to uplift the people of an under developed region.

St. Pius X College is a fruit of the belief that social transformation and development are possible through educating and empowering people. This ‘educational ashram’, as pointed out by the first NAAC peer team in 2005, has been earnestly working hard during the last twenty five years to attain the dreams of its founders.

From its inception in 1995 onwards, the College is very selective in offering courses that are unique and reflective of the changing times. We are very proud to say that, as pioneers in offering Microbiology course at under graduate level, we could guide many students to the vistas of higher levels in this field of science and convert them into significant contributors at international level. We are blessed with alumni who did their higher education from world renowned institutions like London School of Economics after graduating from this rural institution. We have been empowering and transforming lives of many under privileged during the last twenty five years.

The college provides exciting educational opportunities for students from all backgrounds and locations. The faculty and staff are dedicated professionals who excel in their respective fields. The institution also offers sufficient chances to students to get involved in various extra-curricular activities through the plethora of programmes, activities and clubs functioning in the campus.

The commitment of St. Pius X College to provide quality education is evident through its readiness to undergo assessment and accreditation processes stipulated by the UGC, the statutory agency in higher education. We are the pioneers in Kasargod district to undergo NAAC assessment in 2005. Further, we are the only higher education institution in the district to complete the third cycle of assessment and accreditation. We are proud to say that we could attain and retain A Grade in the previous two consecutive assessments by the NAAC.

We, the St. Pius X family offer ourselves with renewed vigour and commitment to the service of the humanity as reflected in the motto of the College - ‘Pro Deo Et Populo’ (‘For God and for People’).
