"The tradition of excellence is ours; the choice is yours!"
Dear Parents and Students,
It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to our College website. As Principal I am hugely impressed by the commitment of the College and the staff to the provision of an excellent all-round education for our students in our state of the art facilities. Under my leadership, and as a team working together, we strongly promote academic achievement among our students. The cultural, sporting and other successes of all of our students and staff are also proudly celebrated together.
The Government College (Autonomous) known as The Cambridge of South India is one among the oldest Indian Educational Institutions since nineteenth century. It was started in the year 1854. Situated on the banks of Cauveri as Cambridge on Cam, it has produced eminent scholars and professionals of no mean stature.
The great mathematician Ramanujan, Rt. Hon. V. S. Srinivasa Sastry, the silver tongued orator, Tamil savant Thiyagaraja Chettiar and his successor to the Tamil Chair Dr. U. V. Saminatha Iyer, Principals Bilderbeck, Gopal Rao and a long line of them are ever in the niches of this college’s memory.
With a long and rewarding history of achievement in education behind us, our College community continues to move forward together with confidence, pride and enthusiasm.
I hope your visit to the website is really useful.
Prof. M. Meenakshisundaram
