"St. Thomas' College Thrissur is one of the leading academic institutions in the higher education sector of Kerala since 1919. It has a long and proud tradition of excellence in training, teaching and research in a number of academic disciplines including Literature, Chemistry, Botany, Zoology, Statistics, Mathematics, Computer science, Economics, Commerce, Physics and Social science. It attracts some of the brightest minds from all over Kerala and from different parts of the country and Asia, and its alumni has made outstanding contributions to academics, governance and industry. The recent NAAC re-accreditation in 2017 with 3.4 GPA & 'A' grade proves the potential of this institution. The University Grants Commission has granted Autonomous Status in this year (2014). In 2016 college is recognized as College with Potential for Excellence by UGC. The webpage of the college, which has been in existence for quite a few years, providing useful information to one and all and about its various facets, has recently been redesigned. I hope that in this new avatar, it will be even more informative to those interested in college activities."
