Studying and live as a part of heritage and traditional edu.

CMS gives its students an experinece of its kind. Being part of a heritage as old as 200 year the campus is nothing but superb. Faculty is fine in the course opted and have a good set of seniors as well. Thwe campus has good infrastructure and basic requirements like purified drinking water, toilets and good classrooms with proper furniture are met. The collage has its own sports gymnasium and have a fully turfed sports ground where athletics, football and cricket can be played, a volleyball pitch, a basketball pitch and a hockey pitch. The campus is spread across an area of about 35 acres and hence is not at all boring. For every person visiting CMS, it will be a memory to treasure.

Great Campus Great Amenities

Posted on 29 Oct' 15 by Ajith K R

From my college experience, I hope to gain many things. Obviously college is a time that students can truly become individuals. When I attend college I will have the opportunity to become more independent and to take on new responsibilities. I have always relied on my parents for support, but at college I will be on y own an will have to push myself harder. This will help me to become more mature and will help me grow in character. Right now I have a fairly accurate idea concerning what I want to do with my life. Yet, I am also aware that I may change my mind several times before I begin a career. College will introduce me to new and various things, an I will develop new interests from this exposure.

About College:

The CMS College is one of the oldest western- style colleges in India. It was founded by the Church Missionary Society (CMS) of England, back in 1817. It is located in the town of Kottayam, which lies in the state of Kerala. The teaching of the English language was one of the main aims of this college, as it was the first such in the then- Princely State of Travancore. For this purpose, the Royal Family of Travancore set out sixteen acres of land. While initially the CMS College was restricted to men only, as was the norm back then, in 1938, female students were first admitted here. Post Graduate studies were first introduced here in 1959. The Church of South India, Madhya Kerala Diocese runs the management of the college.

An AQAR (Annual Quality Assurance Report) gets generated to quantify the results.
