About Purnea College, Purnea

Purnea College situated in Purnia was established in 1948. It is the oldest institution of higher education present on the periphery adjoining West Bengal in the east and Nepal in the north. The institution is a commemoration of the efforts of the freedom fighters of this area. The college’s history goes way back to 1944 where it began at the Gokul Krishna Ashram but the effect of Quit India Movement still running at a pace found the pioneers of this mission behind the premises of different prisons and only after the independence the college could be established successfully bringing a number of people’s dream come true. The state capital is 300 km away without road connectivity, the nearest college is 100 km away at Bhagalpur across the river Ganga, only a few could manage to have their wards sent to faraway places for higher learning. Varanasi, Patna, Kolkata, even Bhagalpur, and Muzaffarpur were out of bounds for the common people of this area which is predominantly connected with agriculture even today. The college has three main streams - Arts, Science and Commerce up to the PostGraduate level. The B.C.A. Hons course was sponsored by UGC in 1997 and later on B.C.A. (Semester course), B.B.A Programme was launched under self Financing scheme. The college provides accommodation and infrastructural support to IGNOU and NOU study centers. The community college has added a new chapter in the ongoing journey of the college. The newly built massive examination hall and a new hostel by the state Government have lessened the load to a great extent in matters of conducting examinations in a secure way and lodging facilities of students in a fair manner. The college has two premises, the main building is situated in the middle of 47.24 acres and the other part is the massive open ground known as Rangbhumi Maidan comprising the Indira Gandhi Stadium built by the central government. There is enough scope for developing a sports complex in the Rangbhoomi Maidan. The college has recently been declared as a center of excellence by the State Government but it only gives us impetus, the faculty members are aware of their responsibilities. Devoted and academically friendly teachers nourished this institution right from its inception and the process continues.
