“ And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. — Genesis 1:3, New International Version

"Let There Be Light" is the motto of the Colleges. The motto is synonymous with a phrase from a popular verse in the Bible. The verse is Genesis 1:3 and is as follows in the New International Version of the bible: "And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light." The phrase can be interpreted as the spreading of knowledge and dispelling ignorance. The Latin equivalent, "Fiat Lux" (also rendered as "Sit Lux" et cetera) is used by numerous other institutions globally e.g. University of California, University of Liverpool
University of Liverpool
etc. The motto appears on the Cornway College
