I am delighted to reach out to you through the website of the Loyola College Alumni Association.
As all of us are aware, Loyola College is an illustrious institution that has positively shaped the lives of those that entered its portals. It is a fountainhead of support to many an underprivileged student who is in need of education and moral help, as much as it is a perennial spring of learning for other students.
The alumni of Loyola are among the fortunate few who have had the opportunity to blossom in a cosmopolitan ambience amidst a rewarding academic environment. Life at Loyola is an invigorating experience that paves the way for wholesome development of personality. The inspiring academic environment, the comfortable life in the hostels, the warmth and care of the Professors, and the competitive atmosphere of extra-curricular activities nurture the students to shine as leaders in their chosen fields.
The alumni of Loyola are spread out across the world, holding positions of eminence. I would like to appeal to them to partake in the activities of the Alumni Association, as I am sure that the alumni can play a significant role in institution-building. At this juncture, I would like to quote Steve Jobs, the co-founder and past CEO of Apple Inc., who has left an indelible imprint on the lives of the present-day youth. He writes, "Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition."
Let us, therefore, be discrete and righteous in thought, word and deed, and strive to uphold the Loyola tradition of justice, truth and love in all our endeavours.
I am looking forward to an active participation from the alumni in all the events of the Alumni Association.
With best regards,
Dr. G. Viswanathan, - Chancellor, VIT University
