As you venture out into the world of higher education in liberal arts, let me introduce you to Gokhale Memorial Girls' College, a premier educational institution exclusively for women.
Located in the heart of the Kolkata city, the College offers a stimulating ambience for learning and caters to students from all over the city and its suburbs, irrespective of their socio-economic status. The College is affiliated to the University of Calcutta and aided by the University Grants Commission, New Delhi.
While the college provides a sound holistic education for its students, it continues to instill good moral values in them, empowering them to cope with the challenges of modern society and to become mature and responsible citizens. Since its inception in 1938, Gokhale Memorial Girls' College has forged ahead in the academic sphere with both its teachers and its students remaining true to the guiding motto, "What shall I do with that which does not give me immortality?"
Highly motivated and qualified faculty members constantly seek to enhance the teaching-learning process. Co-curricular activities complement the curriculum and help the students develop their inner talents and creativity. Intra-college competitions, sports and tournaments, cultural activities, literary activities, observances and social outreach activities provide a stimulating environment for all-round development of the students. They are encouraged to participate in seminars, workshops, exhibitions and educational tours.
In this college, we constantly embrace changes in order to keep pace with technological advancements that the present world is going through while retaining our core values. Several modern facilities are offered to help the student lead a comfortable and enjoyable 'college life'. A clean and fresh college premises is an essential feature that motivates students in developing good habits. The entire staff maintains a cordial relationship with the students. The College runs smoothly under the guidance of the Governing Body, independent of interference from any quarter.
It is with pride and pleasure that I state that, over the years there has been a continuous enhancement in the performance of students in the University examinations. Every year we have students topping the list of candidates in a subject or the other. I congratulate them all and wish them success in their future endeavors.
I also convey my best wishes to the new entrants and all senior students and urge them to uphold the code of conduct and the rules of discipline laid down in the College Prospectus and put up a good academic performance through hard-work. It is my sincere wish that they spend the most memorable years of their lives in this College.
On occasion of our Platinum Jubilee Celebration, I convey my sincere thanks to all the patrons, the faculty and staff, the members of the Governing Body, the students and the guardians for their whole-hearted support that has transformed this College into an esteemed institution.
