Vivekananda College, Madhyamgram was established in 1986. It is named Vivekananda College to pay our homage to Swami Vivekananda, the great patriot and social reformer, and eternal embodiment of the soul of India and a great
inspiring force behind the making of modern India.
Our College is a co-educational general degree college affiliated to the West Bengal State University. It is situated in a calm and quiet atmosphere and is far from markets, stations, cinema halls and other disturbing factors. At the same time it is within the locality where all modern amenities are available. It stands on the eastern side of the Jessore Road, National High Way No-34, about 1km from either Madhyamgram or Hridaypur railway station on Sealdah-Bongaon section. It is about 18 km away from Calcutta and is connected with the city, the capital Of West Bengal both by bus routes and train services.
The college has now its own building (two storied) & women's hostel, canteen for student & staff surrounded by boundary walls. General courses in Arts and Honours courses in English, Bengali, History, Geography and Education are taught here. But behind this achievement there is a history - a history of struggle a history of dedication and sacrifice of some good souls of our locality.
