Radical Prayer

Lord, enlighten my mind with truth;
Inflame my heart with love;
Inspire my will with courage;
Enrich my life with service
Pardon what I have been;
Sanctify what I am;
And order what I shall be.

Why Xavier's

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)..
