Soon, the ‘Club’ grew into the Loyola Institute of Visual Communication (LIVCOM), offering a two-year Diploma in Visual Communication as an evening programme from the year 1979. The welcome the programme received from the media industry led the Loyola management to go in for a full-fledged Degree in Visual Communication. Thanks to the efforts of Fr. Jeyapathy Francis, S.J., then Director and his committed staff of Culture and Communication, Loyola College.
