With its imposing legacy, City College refers back to the golden days of the Bengal Renaissance. In 1881, stalwarts of the Sadharan Brahmo Samaj envisaged a holistic system of education for the younger generation. Since its inception, City College has been retaining that 'man-making' vision.
This college provides a stimulating environment where young minds have a fair chance to bloom into mature intellects. The college offers a wide choice of undergraduate courses both at honours and general level in disciplines of Arts, Science and Commerce. City College draws its academic strength from its competent faculties, well-equipped laboratories and an exceptionally resourceful library. Seminars, workshops and various extension programmes further liven up the institutional ambience.
In its long run of 129 years, City College can boast of playing Alma Mater to numerous illustrious minds of Bengal's progressive past and present. And, the future of this trend surely holds myriad promises for the posterity.
