Kuriakose Gregorios College, Pampady, situated on the- lush green 'Kilimala Kunnu', hardly a kilometer South-West of Alampally Junction, is a unique temple of higher learning in many respects.
An institution that strives towards excellence with indefatigable zeal, K.G. College had its humble beginnings, way back in 1981 in the ITC buildings at Pothenpuram, close to the sacred tomb of Pampady Thirumeni in whose hallowed name the college was established. On 14th September 1981, the foundation stone of the new college building was laid and within a year, the college was shifted to the new premises. The two decades that followed witnessed the success saga of the college. Today K.G. College has acquired fame and name as one of the best colleges under the Mahatma Gandhi University.
AIMS AND OBJECTIVES
The primary aim of the college, at the time of its inception was to perpetuate the sacred memory of Kuriakose Mar Gregorios (Pampady Thirumeni), the Saintly Metropolitan of the Kottayam Diocese of the Malankara Orthodox Church. The College bears the name of the Patron saint and tries to do justice to his vision and mission.
In keeping with the vision of the late lamented Metropolitan, whose life was a glowing beacon of charity and compassion, the college specially caters to the weaker sections of society.
This co-educational institution aims at developing the physical, spiritual, intellectual, moral and aesthetic powers of the students so that they may transform themselves into "intellectually trained, morally upright, socially committed and spiritually inspired men and women".
The curricular and co-curricular activities of the college are so well planned and efficiently executed that the students have access to the best means of formation and information to achieve academic excellence and to succeed in every field of life and activity by developing a sense of discipline, social responsibility and service to the community and nation.
