College Motto and Mission[edit]

The College motto is 'Scholarship and Perseverance'. In the College's intimate and dynamic learning atmosphere, students will develop the drive for social entrepreneurship: a passion for creativity and innovation, and acumen in pursuing new projects and ideas, not just for personal gain but for the common good.
