In life this is one such decisions I always feel proud and happy about, choosing to study here in RAJAGIRI. I am so glad to share my successful and happy journey in Rajagiri College. In a very short time span I was able to sink into the very spirit of it. The bond and relation with the faculty strengthened me in lot more ways to grow high. They helped me the most to recognize my abilities. I take this moment to cherish all the good things I was able to achieve from there. This is the place which taught me to dream big. The serene atmosphere and the infrastructure that every student gets from here is undoubtedly the best. This place is an amalgamation of learning, culture, fun, enjoyment and many more life preaching activities. This is a unique place to study and enjoy that no one feel regret about.
