College Crest and Anthem

The College Motto

The crest is to an institution what the insignia is to a military general. It symbolizes its ethos, status and purpose. The crest of St. Joseph's College of Commerce spots two scrolls – one above, on which is inscribed the motto of the institution in Latin – 'Fide et Labore', meaning ' By Faith and Toil', and the other beneath, the name of the institution. A shield at the center bears the cross which is symbolic of the Christian faith; and the two bees on either side of the lower part of the cross are an expression of tireless work. Further the palm leaves encircling the shield are a call to victory, and the crown above, the crown of glory. The college motto is 'Fide et Labore' which means 'By Faith and Toil'. Faith, among other things gives a person commitment to God, to his fellow beings and to intellectual pursuits. Toil is the prerequisite for success.

The College Anthem

Ring out the battle call of duty !
Unfurl the flag of faith and Toil !
We deem our soul's eternal beauty.
A life-long Victor's worthy spoil.
A thousands such are proudly gone before us
To win and spread our College renown:
tis ours to swell with our voices the chorus
And with our deeds enrich her crown.


Faith and Toil ! conquer less alliance
Wherein we clasp human hands unto God's !
In his control, find we true self-reliances;
My hand and God's - what`er the odds
My hand and God's - what`er the odds
My hand and God's
Evils onset hold in defiance !
