HISTORY
South Calcutta Girls’ College – the third oldest girls’ College in West Bengal – is a historical treasure-trove. Since its establishment in 1932, the College has lived up to its heritage of imparting humane education to its students and has contributed to social empowerment and upliftment of women. This College has an illuminating repertoire of students and teachers who have performed consistently not only in academics, but also in the sojourn of life. As the Principal of such an illustrious institution, I take this opportunity to congratulate the students, teaching and non-teaching staff for maintaining its ideals over the years and striving further for holistic excellence. I hope that the College will take innumerable successful strides in future and determine its proud niche in the annals of India’s academic history. South Calcutta Girls’ College takes pride in being the first college for women in South Kolkata. It was established in 1932 by the eminent scholars and educationists like Peary Mohan Chatterjee, after whom the College library is named. South Calcutta Girls’ College was initially a sister organization of the Beltala Girls’ School and functioned as a morning college in the school premises till mid-July, 1946. The College then shifted to 72, Sarat Bose Road, Kolkata 700025, where it stands now. In the year 2007, the college reached a new era of completing seventy five years. The inaugural ceremony which started from October 2006 was followed by a series of academic, cultural and other activities throughout the year. South Calcutta Girls’ College is dedicated to all-round development of young women, helping them to face the challenges of the modern world. Besides encouraging educational achievements, our institution lays emphasis on fostering self- confidence and inculcating the right values, so that our students can develop as responsible citizens of our country.
