    SreeNarayana College for Women, run by the SreeNarayana trust, is an aided college, affiliated to the University of Kerala, which comes under 12(f) 2(B) Act of UGC, with a strength of about 2500 students. Started in 1951, it stands as a proud and triumphant institution, producing a large number of women professionals, entrepreneurs and educated home makers. The college offers quality education and maintains consistently high academic standards, giving students equal opportunity for improving themselves and bettering their own life. The prime aim of the college is to reach out to students from socially and economically backward sections of society, and to equip them with the necessary skills and education to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing world.
   Since its inception, SreeNarayana College for Women has been in the forefront in the field of higher education and has constantly endeavored   to make its programmes of study more relevant, innovative and student centered. I am proud to say that ours is the only arts and science college for women in Kollam district which offers fifteen courses including two rare courses – Home Science and Music. In addition to core and optional courses, all academic programmes include both interdisciplinary and skill based courses.
    The college offers the students a wide range of opportunities to encourage and foster creativity and leadership skills through various extra and co- curricular activities like sports & games, food fest, community service , NCC,NSS, arts fest etc. We give the students an open platform to express their views and respond to current social issues and encourage them to take part in all positive ventures of the government and social bodies. The college has taken up many important ventures and projects over the years. To make the campus clean, we have made the campus plastic free and has installed a biogas plant and incinerator for waste disposal. Rain water harvesting, water purifiers, solar power etc are measures taken in the area of environment protection and conservation.
    Our Management, Alumni and the Former Teachers Association form the backbone of the institution. Guided by the light of the great SreeNarayana Guru, the college will always strive to expel the darkness of ignorance and to illumine the minds with wisdom through learning. By empowering women through education we hope to build a better society.
    Out of the 15 departments, we have four post graduate departments, a research department and one department will soon be upgraded to research department. Our faculty members are actively engaged in the field of research and at present they have published more than 109 papers in peer reviewed journals.
   Together, our well qualified faculty and non-teaching staff are hard at work to make our institution one that can rub shoulders with the best in their respective field and bring prosperity and empowerment to the next generation of Indian women!
