The college is an absolutely beautiful campus with numerous flora and fauna. It takes one time to understand the beauty of it though in the end the wait always seems worthy. It gives a sense of being at home, especially for the hostel residents. The faculty are all helpful and caring for the students. I feel that I have an emotional connection to the college and all that is in it. It gives me a sense of belonging that I have a lot of people who can stand by me and advice me. WCC has taught me a number of lessons on life. I believe that I will go out of WCC as a wonderful personality.

pressure cooker but fun

The standard of education is good and most of the faculty have done their doctoral degree and also their teaching ability is really good. Since I had a choice based credit system in place I was able to choose subjects outside my field. Since it is a government-aided program the infrastructure is not phenomenal but then it is sufficient. Placements are good for other courses probably because a lot of MNCs do visit the college but for life sciences stream it is not good. A lot of scopes is given for extracurriculars. Sports and service are compulsory for the first two years. we have a mixed crowd and college life was good on the whole.

Every college has its own stories to be told forever and so does my Alma Mater. A lush green campus in the center of the city known for its rich Flora and Fauna inside the campus , century old heritage buildings standing tall till date carrying a legacy and story to be told to its children, one set of amazing teachers and a lively student community will make the college worth it there. Studies is just not the only thing at WCC there is something more to it. Various events throughout the year starting from Twin Day( dressing up same with each other), School day, ribbon day, head gear day are some examples. various clubs that are present will enhance the students to make their presence felt in college more. The annual college fest FESTEVE , the most awaited event by all the art college easily fetches a crowd of 5000 people per day. Almost every department will have to make its students work on internships all three years , industrial visits, field trips etc will enhance the Corporate world experience for its students. Student exchange program with renowned two universities in the USA is an add-on to the profile. Placements are not that good but can still be worked upon more.Social service and physical fitness become a mandate in the curriculum for everybody. How can I not mention about these important food related things in our college where even outsider would want to come and taste. Brownies and chocolate buns from Hannah auntie, thick juices from our juice uncle, nesteas and maggies from our Kiosk and the health food center makes our pass time at college.This becomes a dream for every girl to at least study in this institution once and so did i . And mainly the fees is soo affordable that any strata of our society can be a part of this great institute. As only fees are what they take and nothing else. It was one magical journey which I'd want to relieve again.

About College:

Women’s Christian College was founded on 7th July 1915 as a joint venture of 12 missionary societies from the UK, USA, and Canada, under the able leadership of the first Principal, Dr. Miss Eleanor McDougall, with 41 students and 7 faculty in  Hyde Park, rented premises in Kilpauk.   Declared a first grade college in 1916, WCC purchased the imposing Doveton House built circa 1798 and set  within 11 acres of sylvan surroundings along the banks of the River Cooum in Nungambakkam, using a gift of $25,000, generously donated by the Women’s American Baptist Fellowship Missionary Society from the legacy of Mrs. Laura Spelman Rockefeller.  The College shifted to its new home on College Road on 5 July 1916 and as the number of students grew, bought up 2 adjacent parcels of land and buildings bringing up the total acreage to 20.

The Mission Statement of the  College “To provide a complete, meaningful and relevant education to women so that they are intellectually well-trained, morally upright, socially aware and spiritually inspired” continues to remain relevant in the current context. Within the first week of its inception, the maxim“Lighted to Lighten” was adopted as the College Motto and the sunflower as the College Flower; the College Crest was designed and the College Song, “Alma mater” was set to the tune of Finlandia composed by Sibelius.

From the early years, the college has had ties with similar institutions both in India and abroad. Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts, USA, adopted WCC as its ‘Asian Sister’ and from time to time sent us books and gifts.  As a gesture of gratitude, WCC has named one of its residence halls after this patron.

In 1937, a daughter institution, St. Christopher’s Training College for training graduates in teaching was established and nurtured on campus till they moved to their own premises.
