Ramsaday College, affiliated to University of Calcutta, is the second oldest rural college of Howrah District. It has an illustrious tradition which contributes to its very own culture. It was established on 1 st August of 1946 under the visionary leadership of educationist Late Panchanan Chongdar. It was he who wanted to spread education and 'Utility of Education' among the poor and backward people of the society. He advocated the concept of empowerment of women. The college had a very humble beginning with a handful of students starting their classes is a few rooms. However today's picture is one of complete transformation. Struggle is still there but is no more a simple struggle for survival but rather a constant endeavour to attain excellence.
Today's Higher Education has witnessed a paradigm shift from elitist ostracism to common man's right to knowledge. The College is trying to adopt itself to this new way of thinking. The semi-urban location of the college caters to the needs of students who came from the grass root level, some of them are even first generation learners. The college is trying hard to set a pedagogic goal that is less hectoring and instructional and more learner facilitating.
