Education is the manifestation of love and my most cherished possession. Education drives away ignorance and through illumination it emboldens a man to a righteous thought and action. It empowers a woman and enlarges the horizon of her mind. It energizes a society and enables a man to earn his living with respect and praise. Hence my love for it.
I am greatly rejoiced and proudly place on record the fact that Edayathangudy G.S. Pillay Arts and Science College, the visionary dream of its Founder Dr. Chev. G.S. Pillay – a humble servant of education whose little mission a decade ago to transform a small college into a big one, has unfolded into an institution of glorious past and great future.
In order to accomplish our vision and mission, we are prepared to take as much effort as possible for the betterment of academic scenario in India. We believe that education is an effective medium of social transformation. We get encouragement, looking at bright and successful careers of our thousands of students, which subsequently benefit the society. We feel proud that we are part of such an excellent institute, which is shaping modern India.
Edayathangudy G.S. Pillay Arts and Science College endowed with progressive futuristic outlook aims continual growth in the quality of all academic activities with a sense of commitment to fully meet the expectations of the students, parents and society at large.
Our college cares for the individual development of each and every student. We follow “mentor system” under which each class is put into the multi-pronged web of a teacher. We accord prime importance to the behavioral discipline, moral integrity and cognitive developments of our students. Departments of Youth Welfare, NSS, Physical Education, Career Guidance Cell, Science Forum, Youth Red Cross Society, Red Ribbon Club and Centre for Women Empowerment offer integrated services for the multi–facetted developments of our students. Our teachers strive to teach not only academic programmes but also life skills needed for students’ self development with highly resourceful faculty.
I wish the best of fortune, peace and prosperity to all those who contribute to the noble task of spreading education and its manifest qualities, aims and objectives.
