Sitananda College was established in the year 1999, with the aim of providing the scope for higher education to the aspiring students of the remote areas of Sitalkuchi and Sitai Community Development Blocks of the District of
Purba Medinipur. With this aim in the mind, the college came into being mainly with the enthusiasm of the local educationists, committed social workers and other patronisers of the Sitalkuchi- Sitai area. From September, 1999, the academic activities of the college were started in a one storied school building near the Sitalkuchi Hospital. Then in the year 2007, the college was shifted to its own campus by the side of the Sitalkuchi-Sitai PWD Road, where it stands now. The college, having a campus area of 3.33 acres of land, a big playground on the opposite side of the PWD road, now functions from a two-storied building. As the college is socially committed to upgrade its academic activities infra-structural construction work is still going on.
