A Few Introductions from our Respected Principal :
It is with great pride and pleasure that I write as the Principal of Bijoy Krishna Girls’ College, Howrah, a college with its humble beginning under the tutelage of a visionary Sri Bijoy Krishna Bhattacharya in 1st August 1947 blossomed into the largest girls’ college of the country. Since its inception the college has been steadily surging ahead adapting to the changes in the world around it but invariably retaining its core values of service, integrity, discipline and decency. Over the years there has been a conscious effort on the part of all involved to attain an outlook that is an ideal mix of tradition and modernity, discipline and freedom that is essential for the holistic development of our students. The college has sought not only to form and inform but also transform the students by attempting to work a wondrous alchemy of change and purification in young minds. There has always been an effort to enhance the quality and scope of its educational initiatives through seminars, extension lectures and special lectures. Many erudite scholars have graced several such occasions that has enriched the students and teachers alike. Stalwarts of the society have contributed to increase and improve its infrastructural facilities. Acknowledging the close relationship between habit and habitat the college has tried to provide a clean, refreshing and intellectually stimulating environment in which young women from diverse backgrounds may interact and develop into well-informed, socially-aware, mature and responsible citizens of a vibrant republic. In its never ending effort to achieve the best the college has been complementing the academic activities with co-curricular pursuits such as debates, quizzes and cultural programs which help the students to unfurl the petals of their creativity and blossom into well-rounded personalities. Extension activities such as excursions, both centrally organized and departmental, along with humanitarian outreach programs are provided for teaching students to accommodate viewpoints other than their own. Aware of the practical ends of education the college has always organized career-counseling and placement-assistance programs for students in collaboration with well-known companies in order to equip them for the wider world awaiting them. So many of our students have reached the highest echelons of the society. With an inspirational heritage and a basket of success stories under our umbrella we now strive to achieve a grade of excellence through NAAC which the college will be facing this academic session with a conglomerated effort of teacher student and all concerned. Our success lies in the success of our students and in their achievements.
