Hello folks, it is celeberation time here. My college is celeberating its gloden jubilee year. established in the year 1957 by Late Shri. Karumuthu Thiagarajar Chettiar in the arts college campus. A year later, it was moved to its current place at Thiruparankundram, near madurai. The college has a lot of achievements and it is the first in many aspects.

The 50th year celeberations were inagurated by the Cheif Minister Dr.M.Karunanidhi on 29/1/07 amidst great applaud from the students. The prominent guests were the minister for higher education Dr.Ponmudi, and ‘kaviperarasu’ Variamuthu. Also present seated among the audience were Mr. Jayaprakash Gandhi, a prominant educational consultant and various others. The audience also included considerable amount of political people who came along with the CM. The main event of the evening was the inaguration of the Mechatronics block and laying the foundation stone for the Golden jubilee hall by the CM Dr.M.Karunanidhi.

When the college report was read by the Principal, we were happy and delighted to know that our alumni include great people as Dr.Sivadhanu Pillai of ISRO. That apart, even to my knowledge, I know a lot of seniors a few years elder to me place in many prestigious companies like the SUN microsystems and CISCO. Our college has achieved consistency inits placements with almost 100% placements every year. Our college has been doing a lot of activities to help improve the society and the nation. Our college holds the patent for plastic tar roads, a great way to put waste plastics to use. It was developed by Prof. Dr. Vasudevan , Dean and head, Dept. of Chemistry.

Thus, our college has come a long way since its establishment in the year 1957. It will defenitely continue its achievements in the years to come. And we have been fortunate to have been the fiftieth year batch of students. So let us all join and celeberate this great event in the history of our college.
