History

Vivekananda Satavarshiki Mahavidyalaya was established in the year 1964 in commemoration of birth centenary of Swami Vivekananda It was an outcome of a tremendous moral and financial support and farsightedness of some of the most sincere and enlightened local people. The college is situated amidst quiet natural surroundings in a small town called Manikpara, located between Kharagpur and Jhargram, just 2.5 km away from NH-6 and about 3.5 km from the nearest Railway Station, Sardiha on Kharagpur-Tatanagar Railway line.
Starting its journey with approximately 50 students of arts stream, 5 teaching and 2 non-teaching staff members in two rooms of a local high school, it now has its own sprawling campus over 18. 86 acres of land acquired on lease from the State Government. Our college presently accomodates more than 1500 students enrolled in Arts, Science and Commerce streams, 58 teaching including full-time and SACTs (State Aided College Teacher), 15 non teaching staff members and 1 Librarian, who strive together to ensure that Vivekananda Satavarshiki Mahavidyalaya emerges as one of the best performing colleges in this region. At present, the College offers degree courses in 13 honours subjects and 14 general subjects. 

Our college campus is surrounded by extensive greenery, providing the perfect ambience that is conducive for a healthy mind and body. It has been providing an opportunity for higher education in Arts, Science and Commerce streams to the first generation learners of the extensive tribal belt of Jhargram (previously Paschim Medinipur) district since many years. Some of our students have performed remarkably well at the University exams, S.S.C. exams and NET. We feel proud of the fact that some of them are engaged as part-time lecturers in our college, a tradition we would like to continue in future with sincerity and confidence.
