ST.MARY’S JUNIOR COLLEGE, Basheerbagh has been a great blessing for me. The guidance and support from the Principal and Lecturers is incredible. They are fantastically knowledgeable, highly experienced, motivational, responsible, full of energy, caring and clearly dedicated for the welfare of the students. ST.MARY’S, I can say, has helped me beyond words for making me confident and successful and most importantly for giving me direction in life. What I love about this institution is the colossal presence of the principal who encourages students at every step. I am overwhelmed and filled with so much respect and gratitude for my alma mater.

My sojourn in ST.MARY’S JUNIOR COLLEGE ,BASHEERBAGH has been a wonderful experience to cherish. Sports and games have been an integral part of this distinguished college and as a sportswoman I have benefitted a lot from it. Our Principal Ma’am has played a pivotal role in my life, guiding me and going out her way to help me. The dedicated and committed lecturers have helped me academically as I was missing my regular classes due my national and international commitment. I will ever be indebted to ST. Mary’s for the continuous encouragement and support I received from the college.

I am immensely proud to be the Alumnus of my Alma Mater, ST.MARY’S JUNIOR COLLEGE, BASHEERBAGH. It chiselled me into a man of will and determination. It taught me the core values of life and prepared me to face the challenges in life. Learning for me was a pleasure at St.Mary’s. SMJC is a place where you will progress in two fields. First would be academics, the faculty is such that they would always be looking forward to take an extra mile to ensure that the learning curve is as steep as possible. The second in terms of personality, an aspect the importance of which only time tells. I salute the management, Principal and my dear teachers for making me what I am today.
Vinay Jain (2013-2015)
When I decided to study Civics Economics and Commerce in my intermediate, my parents did not agree to it. Sticking to my decision, I walked into St. Mary’s Junior College in the year 2009 and the rest is history I should say. My lecturers imbibed confidence in me and that made me push myself beyond boundaries in achieving things academically or otherwise. St. Mary’s has prepared me to face the world. My relationship did not end after finishing my course. Years down the lane , I still seek suggestions from my lecturers in my career preferences. I am glad that St.Mary’s happened to me!
