Coat of Arms

St Logo111 copy
I am the light of the world” (Jn 8:12). “You are the light of the world” (Mt 5:14). In the crest, the light shining and sending its rays in all directions, is a symbol of Christ and his followers. Christians should receive and radiate the light of Christ. The candle, burning and spending itself, is a sign of selfless service.

The Mithun represents the cultural heritage of Nagaland, which the College will foster and develop.

The open book stands for knowledge in every field, inviting staff and students to explore and unravel the mysteries of nature and achievements of human beings, and thus to come closer to the Creator and one another.

Motto: “Arise and Shine”

The Motto of the College is “Arise and Shine.” “Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of Yahweh has risen upon you” (Isaiah 60:1). The prophet’s message for us is to rise, grow and excel with the power of the Almighty that is assured to all believers.

Patron of the College

St. Joseph, the “Just man,” the faithful guardian of the family of Nazareth, and example of integrity and hard work, is the Patron of the College.

College Anthem

Josephites arise
Let your light shine
Glow in the radiance of knowledge and truth
United in the spirit of love
To thousands outside the wall we shall proclaim
United we stand
Arise and shine
Messengers of peace
Always and forever we shall remain
A family knitted in one
To give all mankind a hope for tomorrow
Arise and shine
