Radical Prayer

LIFE OF MY life, I shall ever keep my body pure,
knowing that thy living touch is upon all my limbs.

I shall ever keep all untruths out from my thoughts,
knowing that thou art that truth which has kindled the light of reason in my mind.

I shall ever try to drive all evils away from my heart and keep my love in flower,
knowing that thou hast thy seat in the inmost shrine of my heart.

And it shall be my endeavour to reveal thee in my actions,
And it shall be my endeavour to reveal thee in my actions,
-Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore

St. Xavier's College is a 157 years old institution with rich heritage and long tradition.

As a Jesuit Higher Educational Institution, it aims to form men and women for others, with fundamental human and spiritual values.

The tiny seed has grown into a mighty tree from 83 students in 1860 to 7,853 students in January 2016.

The College functions in three shifts : morning, day and evening, offering UG and PG courses in Humanities, Science, Education, Commerce and Business Administration.

The College also offers various career oriented certificate and diploma courses to college students as well as others.

The College motto "Nihil Ultra" means Nothing Beyond, a motto, significant and suggestive of a noble ideal, of an unconquerable hope, that should urge the Xavierian always to aim high.

The spirit of Xavier's is Majis greater service to greater number of people for the greater glory of God (AMDG)..
