The logo of this prestigious institution embodies the motto “Deeper, Stronger, Higher”. While the branches reach towards the sky, the roots penetrate deep into the earth giving rise to a rich foliage and luscious fruits. The college like the tree encourages and motivates the students to push his/her roots deep into the soul of the earth and in the process gain knowledge, wisdom and are enlightened. These give them an enduring strength to face life with a brave heart and a positive attitude. The branches stress upon the role of the microcosmic individual in a macrocosmic design. The leaves are a constant reminder of the need for renewal of spirit and regeneration. The fruits symbolize the qualities of self-realization, self-discipline, innovative thinking, ethical decision-making, commitment, sincerity, empathy, sympathy, generosity, tolerance and finally a world view in which one recognized his role.


Deeper Stronger Higher
We sign up to ever strive and seek
To preen our plumes, to ascend high
Our Alma Mater sapient shrine of truth and love Help us grow
Deeper Stronger Higher

Freer, Fuller, Firmer
We grow each day to learn and live
To give back all we gain and grasp
From kin an’çountry an’ minds of mighty thought and soul Nourished we grow
Free, Fuller, Firmer

Braver, surer, joyful
Fly we away to unknown shores
Fear we naught any thorny snare
Walls we break creeds we smash, souls we touch And willing we give
Light, Love, Truth

Peace Peace Peace
Swear we to spread and proclaim loud
Never to falter, ever to achieve
Deeper we root, Stronger we grow, higher we fly We never waver
Deeper Stronger Higher
