Principal’s Message about the Blog
It is good to know that Psychology department of Aloysius College has a blog in order to keep in touch with the students of the department, and also for the rest of the student community to know as to what is happening in this particular department. Psychology as a subject of study is becoming very popular among the students. It has a lot of practical applications to one’s life and in the development of one’s personality. Knowledge about one’s own behaviour builds confidence in a person and makes him or her creative in thinking. I appreciate the department of Psychology for such a creative idea in this world of Information Technology. Through this means of communication may lot of students benefit in their educational endeavors.
