Loyola attaches great importance to the personal and mental well-being of students through a board, mainly provided by aura, the university`s orientation centre. Loyola is proud to be a pioneer among educational institutions that have professional advisors who serve full-time to meet the needs and problems of students on an intrapersonal, interpersonal and social scale. The images presented at the “Veedhi Virudhu Vizha” cultural event in Loyola, organized by student assistance services that support Dalit students and other vulnerable groups within the institution, should highlight traditional art forms. But the show sparked riots when several right-wing groups and convinced Hindus, apart from political parties such as the BJP and PMK, treated the college and artists as anti-national and anti-Hindu. But BJP`s Raja was unconvinced and tweeted again that the university had lied and that the show could continue for the full term, although objections had erupted on social media and elsewhere. In 1978, Loyola was one of the first eight colleges to achieve self-employment that helped the college halt its educational admissions policy aimed at creating higher education in a Christian atmosphere for deserving students, especially Catholics, Dalits and underserved parts of society. For the creation of institutions, Temple trusts could have a connection with other institutions and universities or create colleges and schools on their own. All these modalities were developed and the idea was to launch the project from the next academic year. The Simhachalam Temple`s confidence in Visakhapatnam has already shown interest in acquiring the project, Rao said. Another outstanding undertaking of the college is pioneering work in community service through the Outreach program, which operates as part of the School of Service Learning. The college had hosted about 50 slums (urban villages or poor quality villages) around the university campus, under the Chennai Corporation`s zones 5, 7 and 8.
