Way back in 1938, the great Jainacharya Shrimad Vijay Vallabh Surishwarji Maharaj envisioned a dream to establish educational institutions to propagate a harmonious, secular and awakened society where the mind would be without fear and the head was held high. And this saw the evolution of Shri Atamanand Jain College that initially was started as an intermediate college at a time when there was no college within the periphery of 200 Kms.
At present, with the strength of 2000 students, the college imparts instructions in the subject of M.A. Economics, M.Com. and M.Sc (Software) at the post- graduate level. At undergraduate level too, apart from the staple and mainstream courses like Commerce, Arts, Science and Computer Software, the college is upgrading erudition by adding on the latest emerging job-oriented courses like mass-communication, web designing, e-commerce, computer assembly and maintenance, computer and office management, B.P.Ed. Etc.Access to Internet, Zerox machine, overhead projector, LCD Multimedia and well equipped science and computer labs are the facilities at the disposal of egile learners.
If knowledge comes and wisdom lingers, education loses its purpose. To enhance the overall personality of our students, extra- curricular activities like drama, music, debates, elocaution, poetry, playing musical instruments are our regular activities, which go on bringing laurel to the college at the University, State and National level.
In sports, our students are winning accolades at State, National and International level in various events.
