St. Joseph’s College welcomes new students
Dimapur, June 23 (EMN): St. Joseph’s College at Jakhama in Kohima welcomed new students into the institution on June 22 in the college’s indoor stadium. Vikepelhou Lucas Meyase, a retired director of School Education, was the guest speaker of the event, updates stated.
Meyase congratulated the college for its achievements. He said that in the past a ‘simple pass’ or a ‘3rd division’ place could get people any job, unlike the present times where students need to be competitive as “the world is passing through tumultuous times.”
The retired government officer urged the students to be good citizens of the land too. He advised them to “aim high, cooperate with the rules and regulations of the institution” to be successful in life.
In his address, the college’s principal Fr. Dr. Sebastian Ousseparampil termed the occasion a ‘momentous day,’ and welcomed nearly 1600 new students who have joined the college. He appreciated the dignitaries and Jakhama villagers who have always been there through “triumphs and tragedies.”
