The Student Council at Loyola Academy Degree and P.G. College is a body of student representatives who work along with the management acting as a bridge between the students and the administrative authorities. For the past years, student council members have been playing significant roles in conducting and organizing events at college level. Student Representatives are selected from the UG and PG courses in the college. The student council consists of around 80-100 members per year. The students are nominated from each department of UG & PG and there is a screening test to assess their knowledge about the college. The selected students are asked to speak impromptu. This process is followed by a final round of interview. The students who excel in all the rounds and stand out from the others are selected as council members. These students who are diligent & responsible are capable of balancing academics and their duties as student council members, well enough. They live up to the mark in the academic area as well as co-curricular activities. The student council members are headed by the Head Boy and Head Girl at both UG and PG level respectively.
