History of The College
Mannargudi or Raja Mannarkoil which derives its name from the Presiding Deity of the town Sri Rajagopalaswamy is a century old Municipality in the heart of the old undivided Thanjavur District and which is now one of the important towns of Thiruvarur district.
Our College has taken the name of Sri Sengamala Thayaar, the Divine Consort of Sri Rajagopalaswamy. Though there is one Government College in Mannargudi, the need for an exclusive women’s college has always been keenly felt. Swami Vivekananda said to Indian women that they should light up the lamp of knowledge and become fearless, compassionate and large hearted and acquire practical efficiency. As women prove their efficiency in various fields, including the Air Force, our founder Late. Srimathi Krishnaveni, wife of Late. Sri Vivekanandan, decided to fulfill the long felt educational need of the people of Mannargudi and its surrounding taluks.
Our Managing Trustee Dr. V. Dhivaharan as his name indicates has brought
light to educate the women especially to dispel the darkness of ignorance.
Dr. V. Dhivaharan whose educational ideas are firmly rooted in the traditional culture of our country is a man of eminence and an epitome of efficiency. The College was started on 27-08-1994 because of his tireless hard work.
The College has as its motto ‘’ARISE AWAKE AND STOP NOT TILL THE GOAL IS REACHED”, one of the world famous utterances of Swami Vivekananda who was born to regenerate India. The College will prove worthy of such a noble motto. The students will prove themselves to be the strong pillars of a glorious future in India.
Education in its real sense aims not merely at the enlargement of intellectual horizons but also at imparting culture and refinement, marking us conscious of our moral and social responsibilities. The College offers useful job oriented courses with the grace of the Divine Mother and it strives hard to adopt the golden words of Swami Vivekananda.’’Educate our women first and leave them to themselves’’.
