modest start with 130 students the college has grown in strength and stature to more than
1800 students both undergraduate

Rev. Fr. Vincent Arokiadas
The college has obtained permanent affiliation of the Osmania University in 2007. It is the first unaided and youngest college to get Autonomous status in 2011 under the OU jurisdiction & was granted 2(f) and 12 B by UGC. We offer a well - structured curriculum, delivered by well qualified and dedicated teachers, who instill not just the knowledge but the right attitude & skills
in the students to become global citizens.

As William Butler Yeats an Irish Poet of the 20th Century said “Education is not the filling of a pail but lighting of a fire”. We at St.Joseph’s engage ourselves in igniting the minds and setting fire in the hearts of the young leading them to unreached
horizons. However higher we soar our feet are firmly grounded as we reach out in the welfare of Christian minorities and weaker sections of the society. I hope you will enjoy your visit to St.Joseph’s portal which introduces you to the new dimensions of
the college and endorses its richness of being an academic leader.

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine.

I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents. I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now.

When, while the lovely valley teems with vapour around me, and the meridian sun strikes the upper surface of the impenetrable foliage of my trees, and but a few stray gleams steal into the inner sanctuary, I throw myself down among the tall grass by the trickling stream; and, as I lie close to the earth, a thousand unknown plants are noticed by me: when I hear the buzz of the little world among the stalks, and grow familiar with the countless indescribable forms of the insects and flies, then I feel the presence of the Almighty, who formed us in his own image.
