Syamsundar College was founded by late Raibahadur Bisalaksha Bose, the esteemed social worker of the village Shyamsundar, Dist. Burdwan on 12th August, 1948. Former ministers of the Govt. of West Bengal Abdus Sattar, Kalipada Mukherjee and Prafulla Chandra Sen and renowned freedom fighter such as Jadabendra Nath Panja helped a lot in establishing the college at Shyamsundar. P. C. Sen , the former Chief Minister of West Bengal was selected as the first President to the Governing Body of the college. Mr. Shib Mohan Bose, the highly qualified son of Mr. Bose had been appointed as the first Principal of the college.
Initially, Arts, Science and Commerce streams were introduced in the college at Intermediate level.In 1952, on Bisalaksha Basu's special request, Sri Fakirdas Bandyopadhyay, ADPI of undivided Bengal joined as the Principal of the College. Sri Bandyopadhyay, a close associate of famous poet Nazrul Islam, was a renowed scholar of Philosophy with foreign degrees and an able administrator with imposing personality. He was instrumental in upgrading the College to the Degree level with the co-operation of Sib Mohan Bose. In 1956, the College was notified as a Govt. Sponsored Degree College in the Education Gazette. Contribution of Sri P. C. Sen was no less significant in this direction, as he successfully convinced the then Chief Minister Dr. B.C. Roy about the urgency of a Degree College in this locality.
