Loyola Church

A view of this majestic Church built in 1930 at Loyola college campus, Chennai ...

Loyola College is an autonomous Jesuit institution of academic excellence under the historic University of Madras. The institution is among the handful of India's most prestigious institutions for degree programmes in commerce, arts, natural sciences and social sciences. It has been consistently ranked amongst the top five institutions in India.

Loyola College was founded in 1925 by a French Jesuit, Rev. Fr. Francis Bertram SJ, with the support of a group of Jesuits who had had their grounding at the Oxford and Cambridge, and the London School of Economics.

I did my PUC in Loyola during 1956-57. Every student is proud to be a part of this college and calls himself/herself "A proud Loyolite".
It was a great experience to be in this College campus for few hours last week for the Loyola Alumni Carnival ...

Thanks for your visit and your kind comments. I sincerely appreciate your visits :)
I love photography and I enjoy learning photography.
And I am happy to be part of this wonderful Aminus3 Community ...
