“Of all charitable deeds, establishing educational institutions to cater to the educational needs of the people irrespective of their caste, creed and status is the best deed”.
In consonance with this dictum, Thiru.O.RM.M.SP.SV.AN.Annamalai Chettiar, under the aegis of Shri.SV.Annamalai Chettiar Educational Trust, established a prestigious College in Devakottai to provide quality education to the students in and around Devakottai. This noble gesture cried a halt to the exodus of students to far off places for Higher Education.
That the College was called Sree Sevugan Annamalai College shows his profound filial piety. Affiliated to Madurai Kamaraj University, this higher seat of learning came into existence in 1970. Since then it has never looked back. To begin with, the College started functioning with PUC and degree courses in B.A.,(Economics) and B.A.,(Tamil).
The College came to be housed in the Majestic buildings of its own in 1972. Affiliations were granted by Madurai Kamaraj University to start Science Courses in PUC. Further this year witnessed the introduction of two more degree courses B.A.(English) and B.Sc.(Maths).
Under the able stewardship of our beloved founder and his family members, our College has been making big strides for the past 42 years in all spheres of its activities, especially in academic programmes, enrolment of students and number of Degree holders. The quality of higher education in a disciplined academic ambience is no wonder the attraction of students and research scholars to our College. Thus our College has earned the recognition as one of the best colleges in Sivagangai District and one among the reputed Colleges in Tamilnadu.
