WELCOME FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Whether you are a prospective student, parent, a benefactor, friend or an alumna/alumnus of Holy Cross checking in to see what is happening here at Holy Cross campus, this site will lead you to other areas of the College. The college began in July 2009 with a group of 10 faculty members and 61 students enrolled into the BA and BCA degree programs. Beginning our 4 th year in July 2012, we have reached a mile stone as our first class is graduating with their BA and BCA degrees. Our traditions in Holy Cross as educators have been very old, even though the College is only 3 years old and the traditions at the college are rather young.
The members of our teaching faculty are the best that can be found in the area in terms of their dedication and commitments to the students. They mentor the students and help them to perform their best. They are caring, understanding affirming and encouraging. But they also challenge them at the same time so that the best in them can be manifested. Our faculty place teaching as their highest priority and personal attention is the rule hereand not the exception. As a result our students many of whom join the college as average students go out of the college as confident leaders, well prepared for life with the holistic education of heart and mind.
Currently the temporary home of the College is in the Holy Cross School campus at Durjoynagar, but we will soon be moving out into the new campus on Mohanpur road which is about 5 Kilometers away from its current location. The process is on to build up the new campus which will be eco-friendly with modern facilities.
Being small at the present moment the college has a lot of advantages. The greatest advantage is the personal attention that the students receive. As a Catholic College, we support the moral and spiritual development of our students. Students are encouraged to engage themselves in community service where they are exposed to the reality of life outside the campus and to the pains and sufferings of people in their locality. They are encouraged to volunteer to alleviate their pain and sufferings to the extent that is possible for them. Many opportunities are provided for them to develop their leadership qualities, personalities and all round growth.
Holy Cross College is committed to cultivating an appreciation for diverse cultures and experiences within and outside the College community. The students hail from diverse tribal and other ethnic backgrounds. Spending time together at the college, whether in the classroom or outside the classroom, during seminars, cultural programs or in the games field helps them to appreciate diversity and see beauty in diversity. The study toursand study abroad programs planned and executed with our sister institutions in the USA help them to open their horizons and look beyond their borders, cultures and races.
As you visit this site, please remember that your experience will be very different when you visit us in person. While a website is an efficient way to get an idea of what a college is like, there is nothing more engaging and exciting likepaying a visit to the college in person.We welcome you affectionately to the campus. God bless you always.
