          Information for the current students

Rules and regulations cannot make a good College or Hostel; the most important thing is that students and staff alike should have a spirit of loyalty and friendliness, and an earnest desire to join together in making their Hostel and College everything that they ought to be.  But when a number of people are thus attempting to live together in a community, they have to be willing to be guided by certain rules or accepted traditions, so as to prevent disorder and confusion.  Rules and regulations are formulated with this purpose in view and should not be regarded as something imposed mechanically from outside.  These notes draw attention to some of the more important of the rules and customs by which our corporate life is, or ought to be regulated.  It would be a very good thing if every member of the College would carefully note them and try to respect them both in letter and in the spirit.

Life in a college can be regarded as a dismal failure if, as a result of it, the members do not acquire good and pleasing manners, becoming gentlemen.  The secret of good manners and courtesy is simple consideration for others-equals, superiors or those less privileged than ourselves.  In this respect, particularly in the matter of teacher - student relationships our country has a great and noble tradition and it is the duty of all members of the college as cultured and educated citizens to be worthy of our great traditions.

Academic Work and Leisure : Nobody has any right to be in a College at all unless he is doing his academic work as well as he can do it.  An  idle or careless student or teacher is guilty of committing a fraud on the community.  Hard and conscientious work throughout the year — not on the eve of the examination only — by teacher and student alike would greatly help to ensure a happy and successful college life.

A major part of our college work is done in the class rooms.  We should all therefore strive to create that congenial  atmosphere in class rooms where it would be possible for the teacher to give his best and the student to receive to the limit of his capacity.

Most of our classes are larger than they should ideally be and a very special, conscious effort is needed to preserve the atmosphere suitable for concentrated academic work.

But College life cannot be entirely taken up with study.  It is hoped that every student will get much pleasure and profit from games, debates, discussions and in the company of other students. We should try to make sure that whatever we do to amuse ourselves in our leisure moments does not interfere with other people’s  studies or with their liberty.

Games: It is most desirable that every student should play some open-air game in the evening.  Those who have not previously played any, would find it easier to begin at the beginning of the College year rather than a few months later.

When we are not ourselves playing, but watching and inter-collegiate or inter-hostel match we should remember that our College expcets every  member to show appreciation of good play by the opposing team as well as by our own.

Those who play matches as well as those who watch need to remember that it is as much part of a sportsman’s training to take victory with good grace avoiding arrogance and display and to accept defeat honourably without despair and ill will.

 Care of Property: Every student is expected to do every thing he can to maintain the buildings, grounds and furniture of the College in good condition.  It would be helpful to remember not to disfigure the furniture or cut across the field or through the hedges or scatter litter on the floors, courtyard and playgrounds, without putting them in a receptacles.

 Meetings, debates etc. : At meetings and debates the business should be carried on with the order and dignity  befitting an academic society.  This doesn’t mean that there should be no fun; but more notice is a poor substitute for wit and humour and ought to be strictly limited.

For Secretaries of Societies and the College Union:  Secretaries of Societies and the College Union are requested to observe the following rules:

1.Do not invite speakers to the College without first consulting the President of your Society or Staff advisor and the Principal.  

2.Whenever a meeting is arranged in the College give particulars about it to the Principal sufficiently early. This will also help to avoid conflict with the other programmes in the College.

3.It is better to avoid entertainers from outside the College community since it is student enterprise that the College wants to  encourage.  If under special circumstances outside agencies have    to be  invited, the details of the performance must be explained to and permission obtained from the Principal before appointments  are fixed with those agencies.

National Service Scheme (NSS)

National Service Scheme was born in 1969-70 marking the centenary celebration of the birth of the father of our nation Mahathma Gandhi. It was started on an experimental basis in 37 Universities and 3 institutions of higher learning covering about 40,000 students. Now the scheme has been able to involve a large number of students in many programs of social service activities.

In the year 1971, NSS scheme began to function in the undevided University of Kerala. Union Christian College was one of its first units with 100 volunteers. It provides the students opportunities to spend their leisure time in service of the nation. It is the education through community service in order to develop an awareness and knowledge of the social reality, and to have concern for the well being of the community. “The NSS seeks to correct the phenomenon of seclusion of education from the society by exposing the student community to the realities of the society and around the college campus. It provides the studies a wide range of opportunities to study the society in the panorama of a wide “laboratory””.

In 1985-86, the NSS Unit of U.C.College has been adjudged to be the BEST UNIT of 1985-86. The unit is now continuing its activities such as village adoption, nature activities, Sramadans, Blood donation camps, and cleanliness awareness survey.

Mr. Benny Cheriyan, Mr. Santhosh P.S. and Smt. Mini Alice are the programme officers this year. Inter departmental competitions in flower carpet and tug of war were arranged in co-operation with NCC and Physical Education Departments. The students actively participated in the camps. Various classes, debates, film show and other cultural programmes were organised. One of the ‘Sramadan’ works was the cleaning of the Chamaparambu school area. NSS unit of the College completed  building a house for a poor, handicapped child and her family under the leadership of Dr. V.P.Sheela and Mr. M.I. Punnoose..

Recenty the NSS volunteers are raising Tsunami relief fund.


          Residential System
The residential system of life was one of the distinctive features of the college, envisaged by the founder. Over the years, increase in the number of colleges, and their wider distribution across the state has had an adverse effect on this feature. In recent years, however, the demand for accommodation on the premises has picked up. The number of teachers living on the campus too has gone up. This augurs well for the college. Special attention is being given to make the residential system of the college as effective as in the past. At present there are many students staying in the Chako Hostel and about 250 women students staying in the four women’s hostels. A new mess hall  is under construction in the Skinner Hostel. Facilities in the East and West hostels have been improved. The East Hostel is being maintained as such with its antiquity due to the nostalgic compulsions of several old inmates. Yet another women’s hostel is being constructed at the southern side of the East Hostel with  UGC support.

10. Founders Memorial Platinum Jubilee Auditorium
The Founders’ Memorial Multipurpose Auditorium remains the most ambitious project ever taken up by the College. This is now a reality. The auditorium is already being used for limited purposes and is also being rented out. This massive structure is a monument of the goodwill that Union Christian College has accumulated over eight decades of its history. The entire cost (nearly 1 crore) came from old students, friends, teachers, students and benefactor organizations.

But in several important respects, the project remains incomplete. The bare stage will have to be converted to full-fledged performance area o f professional standards. The green rooms and backstage area need to be prepared and equipped. The electrical and lighting fixtures are not yet in place . Acoustic optimization is a functional necessity. Finally, the imposing structure needs to be brought in perspective with proper landscaping. The auditorium must have a gate for the use of the public. This is proposed to be a memorial to Rabindranath Tagore. The Tagore Gate will be an inadequate substitute memorial for the great nationalist and poet, who had laid the foundation for the Tagore Hostel, which had to be taken down years back. The remaining work is expected to cost around Rs. 25 lakhs. The College will have to reach out to the alumni and seek the goodwill of friendly organizations.
