Motto of the College
The motto of the college "I Will and I Can" inspires Jai Hind students
to make the impossible possible, and not to feel constrained by their perceived
limitations. It stresses the will to do, closely followed by the implementation of what
has been willed. The one follows upon the other, the will providing the determination to
do one's utmost to achieve all that is worthwhile in life.
The Campus projects a wholly cosmopolitan
atmosphere, with students from diverse cultures and religions of India interacting with
each other. The college also has a sprinkling of foreign students from countries like
Mauritius, Korea, the African Continent etc. The college also admits guest students from
various parts of the world under the Rotary Student Exchange Programme. Students with
physical disabilities are encouraged and provided with all possible facilities to
become absorbed in the activities of the general student community.
