Navajyothi college at Cherupuzha in Kannur, district, is an academic initiative of the CST Fathers of the Little Flower Congregation who began their ministry there in the 1990s. They realised the need of people for higher education and hence an affiliated self-financed college was started in 2010. The first batch of students was admitted to the three courses of B.com- Computer Application, BBA, and BCA in the following year. In 2013 B.Com Co-operation, BA English Literature with Journalism, and M.Com finance were added to the courses offered by the college. Later years M.Com Marketing, MA English, BA Economics, and B.Com Finance were added to the existing course.
From the beginning, the students of Navajyothi were guided and motivated to excel both in academics and co-curricular activities. When the first batch completed their courses, the college bagged the university ranks in various courses to date. The management is focused on training the students both in the curricular and co-curricular activities of the students. The students of this college bagged many medals in sports and games and at university. The departmental association conducts national and state-level fests and special events co-ordinating different campuses from across India. Departmental clubs and associations are very active on the campus and the students are prepared to become capable and responsible citizens and leaders. The management staff and students work together to make a better more prosperous and promising future for the next generation and the country.
