Few colleges in Kerala can boast of a tradition as rich and varied as Govt Victoria College, Palakkad. It has established itself as one of the most distinguished centres of higher learning in the State. Although the college was started as a Rate School way back in 1866, the institution rose into prominence as a college of renown in 1887 when a great philanthropist, Sri Nellissery S. Narayana Iyer donated land gratis for the construction of this noble alma mater. Since then the college has had a tradition of principals who were excellent academicians and administrators and students who were always eager to strive hard in the pursuit of knowledge. Today, Govt Victoria College occupies a peak of prominence among the cultural landmarks of this scenic district, if not of Kerala. It is spread over a campus of 25 acres punctuated by the imposing buildings housing various departments. The clock tower in the campus, the popular college maidan with its Victorian giant tree offering shade to one and all, and the towering Sri M. Krishnan Nair Gate, are just a few of the major attractions of this college.
The Govt. Victoria College, Palakkad which established in the year 1888 is now entering the glory of excellence and fully digitalization. It is one of the five heritage educational institutions in the education sector of Kerala, providing higher education to the student community. The campus in its life nurtured and brought up a number of leaders, professionals, artists, novelists and poets during the last 128 years.
The institution is keen in imparting an all-round education to the younger generation to become multi dimensional rather than uni-dimensional. The college provides necessary facilities to enrich their academic knowledge and supporting to nurture their extracurricular talents in arts and sports. There is so much to feel proud of our students who excel at University and National level in all academic and co-curricular activities. The success of the college in all spaces is due to the dedicated contributions of multi talented students, highly qualified and dynamic faculties and non-teaching staff.
The college is now running with 15 UG and 10 PG programmes under 18 departments of which four (Botany, Chemistry, Physics and Zoology) are with research facilities. The department provide the students with high quality educational experience in the form of seminars, workshops, quiz, debates, discussion and cultural competitions. I hereby encourage all the students to take advantage of these opportunities to realize their goals in life. The future is in your hand, so your objective is to prepare yourself for an active participation in the society and there by become responsible persons to build up the nation very strong.
'Look to the Future, because that is where you will spend the rest of your life'
