History Of the College

          Thiruvalluvar Government Arts College, Rasipuram situated in a sprawling campus of 40.05 acres of land has been providing quality education since 11th July 1968. The college was started with five pre- university courses. Within a year it was upgraded with degree classes in order to provide education to the students of the nearby villages who were economically backward. Local philanthropists were generous enough to donate liberally to the establishment of the college. The college was functioning in an excellent manner, paving way to the introduction of many new courses. The new premises was constructed in the year 1971.

During the year 1985-86 Evening college was started with B.A., History to provide opportunities to the employed people. A separate building was constructed in 1999 – 2000 to accommodate the increasing demand for the computer Science course. To meet the growing needs of the day a self- financing wing was started in the year 2004 with three courses viz. B.A., Tamil Literature, B.Com., and M.Sc., Chemistry. In addition to these courses, M.Sc., Mathematics and M.A., Public Administration courses were started in self – financing wing in the academic year 2005 – 06. All these courses were upgraded as aided courses in 2009 – 10. Further M.A Tamil and M.Com were introduced in 2011-2012.

In the Academic year 2012-2013, one UG course namely B.Sc. (Nutrition and Dietetics) , five PG courses namely M.A. English, M.A. History, M.A. Political Science, M.Sc. Physics, M.Sc.

Though the college is located in a rural area it caters to the needs of the students who belong to the lower strata of the society. It is trying its level best to introduce the latest courses and technologies to the benefit of the students.

The college has also been active in strengthening the overall development of the students and tapping the potential of rural youth by providing training in Physical education, career guidance and other co-curricular activities like NSS, NCC, ROTRACT, YRC, RRC, etc.

Now, the college is looking for ways and means to develop further in all possible dimensions. At the same time, enhancement of quality should also be aimed at, as recommended by the last NAAC peer team, providing better facilities to the student community, introducing new avenues and programmes for their better growth.
