|Location and Ambience|
Nestled blissfully among vast expanses of vivid picturesque greens, tucked away in centuries-old mountains, their snow-draped peaks losing their heights in the clouds, the College stands out from all else in this legendary “paradise-on-earth”, that is Shimla. The capital city of the state of Himachal Pradesh, a hill station that was the summer capital of India during the days of the British Raj.
The Alma Mater of many a celebrity in the past, St. Bede’s is an exquisite blend of cherished tradition and pristine, aesthetic splendour. Unique, distinct and unsullied, this premier institution possesses an ambience that tacitly exudes an aura of warmth and hospitality, of the perfect ‘unison’ between the modern and the old, a veritable snapshot of raw, natural beauty.
Serpentine roads, backed by a hillside dotted with tall trees of the fabled Himalayan Deodar, lead through magnificent iron gates, to the neat Tudor-styled majestic buildings of the College. A cool, pleasant clime all through the year, coupled with halcyon environs, away from the cacophony and humdrum of modern civilisation, make this the ideal destination for academic pursuit.
Moreover, the campus is located at a comfortable distance from the railway station which links the city with all parts of the country; all major highways connect the campus by road. The truly cosmopolitan character of the college, with Bedeians hailing from all across the country and abroad, bears testimony to the fame and reputation attached to this premier institution with such an enviable, priceless heritage.
