"The instantaneous aim of the education is to prepare the students for their actual life. Education in its real sense is development within and action outside. The core of it is not transmitting information but transforming human personality. This, as exemplified by Sri Aurobindo involves physical, vital, mental, psychological and spiritual aspects. Echoing similar sentiments Swami Vivekananda considered education essential for the entire universe".Read More...

Years In Academic Excellence
From the ❤ Here's what Alumni had to say about us
I had a lovely time at St. Philomena College as a student. We had a wonderful group of Lectures. I would like to take this time to thank the college and professors for making me who I am today. I also want to point out that this college instils in its students a strong sense of self-control and discipline. Best wishes to all incoming college students.
Looking back, I see that I got a firm grounding in science and mathematics at St. Philomena's which helped set the foundation for my engineering career. The well-equipped laboratories provided hands-on practical experience of the theoretical subjects I was studying.The library provided me opportunities to explore English literature
College is the perfect place to discover hidden talents. We have supportive faculty members, who helps us in our difficult times also. Apart from studies, the extra- curriculum activities what they have conducted helped me a lot to build my career.
I feel proud whenever I pass through the road and see the college and its expanding campus. St Philomena college was the only degree college of the Taluk at that time and entering college campus itself was a great privilege and studying was a perennial blessing.==
ಎಂಭತ್ತರ ದಶಕದಲ್ಲಿ ನಾನು ಸಂತ ಫಿಲೋಮಿನಾ ಕಾಲೇಜಿನ ವಿದ್ಯಾರ್ಥಿ. ಪದವಿ ತರಗತಿಗೆ ಸೇರುವಾಗಲೇ ಯಕ್ಷಗಾನ ಮತ್ತು ಸಾಹಿತ್ಯದಲ್ಲಿ ಅಲ್ಪ ಪ್ರಮಾಣದ ಅಭಿರುಚಿ ನನಗಿತ್ತು. ಅದು ಬೆಳೆಯಲು ಬೇಕಾದ ಪೂರಕ ವಾತಾವರಣವು ನನಗಲ್ಲಿ ಲಭಿಸಿತು. ಆಗ ಪ್ರಾಂಶುಪಾಲರಾಗಿದ್ದ ಫಾ.ಹೆನ್ರಿ ಕ್ಯಾಸ್ಟಲಿನೊ ಪ್ರತಿಭಾವಂತರನ್ನು ಬಹಳ ಬೇಗ ಗುರುತಿಸುತ್ತಿದ್ದರು. ನಾನು ಬರೆದ ವರ್ಣ ಚಿತ್ರಗಳು, ಲೇಖನ - ಕವನಗಳನ್ನು ಅವರ ಕೈಗೇ ಕೊಡುತ್ತಿದ್ದೆ; ತಕ್ಷಣ ಅದು ಕಾಲೇಜಿನ ಗೋಡೆ ಫಲಕದಲ್ಲಿ ಕಾಣಿಸಿಕೊಳ್ಳುತ್ತಿತ್ತು.
My experience at St Philomena has been wonderful and memorable. The faculties have been very knowledgeable, supportive and encouraging. Apart from academics, there are several cultural and inter-college events that helped to grow our intrapersonal and interpersonal skills thus ensuring holistic development.
St Philomena College is an institution which has given a new direction for my academic career. The College provides education to all sections of society without seeing the cast and religion, which I do feel hallmark of the College. We have received excellent education and guidance from Professors which actually formed us to reach the present level.
"Education is the best provision for a life journey". College life taught me many things to build our career, to make decisions and to be a responsible one. For me my college life will be the most memorable one which exposes us to a whole new experience.
If I turn pages of my memories, I can vividly remember my days in the college. The conducive ambience of the college inspired me to be a book lover. How could I forget to thank my teachers and the librarian who genuinely motivated me to learn and opened my eyes to see the world through books?
St. Philomena College, Puttur, where I did my Bachelors Degree in Science has excellent infrastructureand learning resources. Collegehas produced some eminent personalities, who have achieved great heights in their career. Located in a beautiful environment and with excellent faculty members, the College has continued to serve the society by imparting value based education. The College has instilled discipline in me and shaped my career to become what I am today.
It’s simply awesome.A lush Green Campus !As always, it holds it’s position as one of the best degree colleges in Puttur, so you cannot doubt the quality of education provided here. I was a BCA student in St.Philomena college.I got many opportunities rather than academic curriculum. Faculties are well versed and motivate every student.There’s a large number of student activity clubs active in the college. Well, if you are a sportsman/sportswoman, you are not losing out on anything in philomena.
St Philomena College is one of the most important and memorable place in my life which gave lots of opportunities to explore myself. IT department fests, Sports and other extra circular actives gave us excellent opportunities to show off our skills and learn new things. Thank you so much to my IT department, the college administration, and my beloved pals from Philomena for helping me to build great future. I'll always be really proud to identify as a Philosian.
St. Philomena is known for Its diversified campus life with resourceful teaching and learning skills. Besides infrastructure, college is valued for its academic rigour, in particular the delivery of student-centric and research-oriented content. I am really proud and happy to be a part of Philo's Family.
St Philomena college is an integral part of my life. If I am a successful professionally now, it's largely credited to my college. The college gave me an immense opportunity to perform in all areas of my interest.
Before enrolling at St. Philomena College, I also had the unique opportunity to connect with BCA professors to decide on my career. I had discussed on subjects they teach, how it differ from other Engineering programs, and what are the potential career paths .
I was like any other timid village boy until I joined the Philomena.Even 40 years after running in those corridors, I fondly remember days spent at the campus, and treasure the basics I learnt from my lecturers at the SPC.In the last decades I had the privilege to give seminars on a few occasions,I thank the college staff and the administrators for keeping the inherent spirit of the college intact throughout these changing times.
Overall experience in St Philomena College is amazing because we are provided many opportunities to grow and explore our skills on sports/ other cultural activities along with education. I always found healthy and friendly environment where teachers are highly supportive.
I deem it most honoured and proud to say that I am an alumnus of the prestigious St. Philomena College, Puttur. The College NSS unit provided me the platform for my personality development and future career. The ambience of the campus is very positive and the staff was highly motivative and supportive.
I studied in St. Philomena College, Puttur and got my B.Sc. degree in 1991. It was a golden period in my life. Most of the students in those days were first generation learners from remote villages of Puttur and Sullia taluks. We had very good teachers who were also great motivators. The teachers, the library and the learning environment made us what we are today. I am grateful to my college.
I am always thankful to the faculty members of the St. Philomena's for their continuous efforts and support during my course. The curriculum, the teaching methodology adopted by our faculty and the extracurricular activities were the turning point of my life which made me the person who I am today. The teachers were like a backbone for a person like me who didn't had any background of computer science when I joined the course. And notably all my batch mates are doing well in their respective jobs which reflect the quality of the students the institute has produced.
I had an opportunity to study and interact with great Principals like late Rev. Fr. Serrao, late Rev. Fr. Castelino & Rev. Fr. J B D’Souza, who were the architects of every student to design their life, which was the foundation stone in my bright future. For me Fr. Castelino was very much instrumental to write KAS exam as well as helping me by giving books from the college library to prepare for the exam.
St Philomena college is my second home. The campus is filled with positive energy. The years I spent there have been full of learning opportunities filled with fun. Faculty members are supportive. They encourage us to actively participate in both curricular and extra curricular activities
My teachers stood behind me strongly and guided me in all means of life, be it academics or values. They were my Guide, Mentor Coach and reason for what I am now. My leadership skill illuminated at College Days as a Student Union Leader, which helped me to be a strong Public Speaker.
I am Proud to say that i am teh alumnus of great institutiton, i was an NSS volunteer and i had participated in NSS Camps which molded me as an active and disciplined student.Then professors were stalwarts and and i was most inspired by most of them both academically and personally.
ಸಂತ ಫಿಲೋಮಿನಾ ಕಾಲೇಜು ನನ್ನ ಬದುಕಿಗೊಂದು ಹೊಸ ಆಯಾಮವನ್ನು ನೀಡಿದ ಸಂಸ್ಥೆ. ಈ ಸಂಸ್ಥೆಯಿಂದ ನಾನು ಕಲಿತದ್ದು ಶಿಸ್ತು, ಪ್ರಾಮಾಣಿಕತೆ ಹಾಗೂ ಶ್ರದ್ಧೆಯನ್ನು. ನಾನು ವಿದ್ಯಾರ್ಥಿಯಾಗಿದ್ದಾಗ ಈ ಸಂಸ್ಥೆಯಲ್ಲಿದ್ದ ಪ್ರಾಧ್ಯಾಪಕರು ನೀಡಿದ ಪ್ರೇರಣೆ ಹಾಗೂ ಹುಟ್ಟುಹಾಕಿದ ಶೈಕ್ಷಣಿಕ ಪರಿಸರ ನನ್ನಂಥ ಎಷ್ಟೋ ವಿದ್ಯಾರ್ಥಿಗಳು ವಿವಿಧ ಕ್ಷೇತ್ರಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಶ್ರೇಷ್ಠ ಸಾಧನೆಗಳನ್ನು ಮಾಡುವುದಕ್ಕೆ ಮೂಲ ಕಾರಣವಾಯಿತು. ಸಂತ ಫಿಲೋಮಿನಾ ಕಾಲೇಜು ನನಗೆ ಯಾವತ್ತಿಗೂ ಒಂದು ಆದರ್ಶ ಹಾಗೂ ಮಾದರಿ.
SPC is one of the most reputed instirutions in D.K. district. The college excellent in terms of facult members and infrastrucure ( the sports facilities, labs, library etc). The focus here is to ensure alround development of students. I was amazed to see their focus on latest trends and technologies.
SPC Puttur nurtured rural and economically deprived students with great care to excel themselves with lot of skills and values for life. It not only built strong academic base to the students, but also supported through co-curricular activities like Sports, NSS and NCC to build their career. I remember my committed band of teachers with reverence.
ಪುತ್ತೂರಿನ ಸಂತ ಫಿಲೋಮಿನಾ ಕಾಲೇಜು ಕೇವಲ ಶೈಕ್ಷಣಿಕವಾಗಿ ಅಷ್ಟೇ ಅಲ್ಲ ಸಾಹಿತಿಕವಾಗಿಯೂ ನನ್ನನ್ನು ಪ್ರೋತ್ಸಾಹಿಸಿದೆ. 1984 ರಿಂದ 87 ರವರೆಗೆ ನಾನು ಈ ಕಾಲೇಜಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಪದವಿಯನ್ನು ಪೂರೈಸಿದೆ .ಆಗ ನನಗೆ ಪ್ರಾಧ್ಯಾಪಕರಾಗಿದ್ದವರು ಅತ್ಯುತ್ತಮ ಶೈಕ್ಷಣಿಕ ಹಿರಿಮೆಯನ್ನು ಹೊಂದಿದವರು. ಅವರ ಪ್ರೋತ್ಸಾಹದಿಂದಲೇ ಆ ಕಾಲೇಜಿನ ಭಿತ್ತಿ ಪತ್ರಿಕೆ -ವಾರ್ಷಿಕಾಂಕಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಸ್ಥಾನ ಪಡೆಯುವುದಕ್ಕೆ ಸಾಧ್ಯವಾಯಿತು. ಆನಂತರದ ನನ್ನ ಎಲ್ಲಾ ಸಾಹಿತಿಕ ,ಸಾಂಸ್ಕೃತಿಕ, ಸಂಶೋಧನಾತ್ಮಕ ಅಧ್ಯಯನಗಳಿಗೆ ಫಿಲೋಮಿನಾ ಕಾಲೇಜಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಅಂದು ಅಲ್ಲಿಯ ಪ್ರಾಧ್ಯಾಪಕರು ನೀಡಿದ ಪ್ರೋತ್ಸಾಹ, ಬಿತ್ತಿದ ಬೀಜವೀಗ ಗಟ್ಟಿಯಾಗಿ ಬೇರೂರಿದ್ದೇ ಕಾರಣ.ಆ ಕಾಲೇಜಿನ ಪ್ರಭಾವಲಯ ಇನ್ನಷ್ಟು ವಿಸ್ತರಿಸಲಿ ಎಂದು ಬಯಸುವೆ... ನರೇಂದ್ರ ರೈ ದೇರ್ಲ.
‘College’ ,the word itself is an emotion as it’s not easy to get everything what you expect but the more you explore the more you learn from it . in my 3 years of journey I have learnt a lot of things, not only related to subjects but , about the leadership quality, about handling critical situations , about teamwork.
Getting admission in SPC was one of the best things that happened in my life. Faculty here is just amazing. They don’t just teach the book stuff but will also give you guidance on how you can bring a change in the society.I express my heartfelt thanks to the institution for giving me the perfect opportunity to explore myself. I am grateful to be part of such an institution.
