From the Principal's Desk

It gives me immense pleasure to welcome the budding and enthusiastic students to this institution of higher learning which is emerging as the college with potential for improvement and excellence. This college made a modest beginning just a decade back in 2008 from a two room rented building of Govt. Middle School, Nowshera. Now the college operates from its beautiful and spacious new campus located at Darshan Nagar, Nowshera. The college offers studies in basic science and humanities. There is no dearth of commitment and enthusiasm among the teaching and non-teaching faculty of this college to fulfill the academic calendar in the best possible manner. Right from its inception, the mission of the college has not only been empowering youth with holistic education but also been striving hard to impart extra competence to transform them to be self- reliant, self- sufficient and prospective for the bright future of modern India.
