About College
On the eve of Swami Vivekananda's birth centenary in 1963, the then District Magistrate of Burdwan Mr.K.P.S.Menon, Chairman of Zila Parishad, Mr. Narayan Chowdhuri, and other honourable citizens of Burdwan took ini- tiative to establish a new college in Burdwan town. Burdwan-Municipality gifted a large chunk of land in the name of proposed college in Sarshe Danga Mauza, near Sadarghat. Mr. Prafulla Chandra Sen, the then Chief Minister of West Bengal, laid the foundation stone for the proposed Vivekananda Mahavidyalaya at the spot on 8 March, 1964, on 23 March of the same year a provisional committee was formed with the District Magistrate Mr. K.P.S. Menon, as President, Dr. Sailendranath Mukhopadhyay, the renowned physi- cian, as the Vice-President and Chief Engineer of Burdwan Zilla Parishad, Mr. Prafulla Kumar Paul, was appointed Secretary of the committee. Meantime a number of illustrious educationists came forward to raise a fund of nearly two lakh Rupees for the college. Set in peaceful surroundings away from the hub- bud of the town, the college offers an ideal atmosphere for pursuing higher studies in the major Arts and Science subjects.

In 1964 the college was accorded the Govt. Affiliation as a Govt. Sponsored college. On 26 August 1964, the college was inaugurated formlly. The chief guest of the inauguration ceremony was the then Director of Education, Govt. of West Bengal, Dr. Dhirendra Mohan Sen.

Setting out in-a rather unceremonious way, the college has gradually occupied a glorious position in the field of higher education in West Bengal. Over time the college has grown both in stature and structure. Recently three buildings have been constructed to accommodate the growing number of students. Post Graduate and degree honours courses in various subjects have been introduced. The college has not merelly catered to the needs of students in Burdwan and its hinterland, but it has also been successful in maintaining a healthy, disciplined academic atmosphere for purposeful education.
