The College started functioning for the current academic year on 06th September -2018. The inaugural function was chaired by the Respected Chairman sir, and the Kuthuvilakku was lit by the Correspondent Madam.

On 22th October, 2018 Saraswathi Pooja was celebrated with usual joy. As per the mythological stories, it was on this day that Goddess Saraswati created powerful weapons to kill the demon named ‘Magishasuran’. The weapons were then considered to be Holy and people
began to worship them. This tradition is followed till date and began to be celebrated as ‘Ayudha Puja’. On this chosen day, people worship their tools and weapons, used in day-to-day life.
During the Navratri celebrations in South India, the first 8 days are dedicated to varied forms of Goddess Shakti and last day is devoted completely to Goddess Saraswati.
