Principal’s Message

A Chinese proverb says “If you are planning for a year, sow rice: if you are planning for a decade, plant trees; if you are planning for a lifetime, educate people”. There is no greater impact than empowering people through education. College is a place where a person finds the transformation of oneself into mature, responsible and become an independent adult. Shasun family assures a student to learn more and march towards improving knowledge, develop skills and prepare for the future. The college not only focuses on the theoretical curriculum, but also help in personal development through extra- curricular activities, creating successful entrepreneurs and by empowering an individual into a good leader.

Our college provides modern day teaching methods, plentiful library resources, placement cell and more other benefits for staff and students. We also offer series of programmes, club activities and forum for teachers to upgrade their intellectual leadership in higher education and through sincere utilisation of the e-resources.

We serve the learner community and provide great support during the tough times. Our mission is to protect students through POSH cell an initiative to prevent sexual harassment against women. We also motivate our students through ‘Yuva Shakti club’ to improve and showcase their inherent talents and skills.

I finally believe that our college is more than just a place to learn. It provides the scope by equipping with everything that a student needs to achieve excellence. There is an assurance that our goal and mission on offering value education would transcend much beyond just awarding degree certificate to students.

I wish our students to discover the true meaning, purpose and fulfilment of life and endeavour in all walks of life.
