When you look at the College Crest, there are the letters IHS in the Centre of the rising sun. This is the abbreviation of the name of Jesus (which in Greek is written as IHSUS). That name symbolizes deepest faith in God, commitment to humanity and the readiness to sacrifice one's life for others.
The Motto of this Institution is Lucet et Ardet. These Latin words which mean 'Shine to Enkindle' refer to the qualities of the mind and the heart. It is the deep desire of this Alma Mater to present to the world and our nation, men and women with knowledge and creativity and hearts burning with genuine love and concern for others.
