St. Thomas College - STC
St. Thomas' College firmly believes that, institutes of higher education, through their curriculum, are expected to provide knowledge, know-how, wisdom, and character to the students. "Knowledge" enables them to understand what they learn in relation to what they already know, and creates an ability to generalise from their experiences. "Know-how" takes them beyond mere understanding and enables them to put their knowledge to work. "Wisdom" makes them capable of deciding their priorities. Character development is the combined effect of knowledge, know-how, and wisdom, coupled with motivation. Character development is recognised by certain traits, viz., honesty, integrity, initiative, curiosity, truthfulness, cooperativeness, self-esteem, and ability to work alone and in a group. The history of the College as an educational institution during the past one century has been inextricably interwoven with the history of the Catholic community and of central Kerala. However, the infancy of the College was days of struggle and hardship, of successfully combating the distrust of the public and the step-motherly attitudes of the authorities. It is worthwhile in this context to recollect the yeomen services rendered by those patrons and members of St. Thomas' College community who took painstaking labour in planning and implementing the affairs of the College.
St. Thomas' College is providing ample opportunities to its students in attaining their career goal. Several prestigious organizations and companies are regularly recruiting students from the campus. Highly reputed companies like Wipro Technologies, Infosys Bangalore, South Indian Bank, Federal Bank, Reliance Group, Asian Paints, MRF, TCS, ASAP, etc regularly visit the college for recruiting young talents. About 100 students get placement every year from the campus. Students from the college also got overseas placement in the Landmark Group of Companies.
