Principal’s Message

              Saraswathi Narayanan College, run and managed by Narayanan Chettiar Trust, is a premier coeducational institution affiliated to Madurai Kamaraj University. It is situated in the sylvan setting of the village called Perungudi near Madurai Airport. It has grown by leaps and bounds since its inception in 1966 with the noble aim of empowering the underprivileged rural community and first-generation learners by honing human capacities through impeccable educational service. Offering as an Autonomous institution, a wide range of programmes in UG, PG and Research streams, this temple of wisdom has proved  to be the most preferred study destination of the country folk. Being guided by the dictum, ‘Duty, Devotion and Distinction’, our dedicated faculty strive hard to provide students with the required knowledge and skills that would help them take on any challenges in this incredibly competitive world. We seek to instil in our students a passion for learning and understanding needed for a positive and constructive contribution to the society. We continuously and consistently strive to ensure the development of the individuals through personal care, mentoring and counselling. The resolute efforts of the enlightened Management, well-qualified mentors and support staff have built an ideal environment for the students to bloom into complete, skilled and responsible citizens who would work towards the betterment of the society. With six Research Departments, having high quality faculty possessing great research credentials have continued to promote active research culture in the institution.

The institution is conscious of the fact that, “Educating the mind, without educating the heart is no education at all”. Knowledge without discipline is highly detrimental to the social harmony. Educational institution is not a place where the students merely study; but it is a place where the students grow into responsible citizens. So this academic power house is vibrant with promising and productive activities spearheaded by the Departments and the thirty-one Wings of Student Support Programmes, to create cultured, developed and compassionate human minds with employable working skills. These activities nurture the students to grow in honesty, confidence, creativity, discipline, and enthusiasm. In our academic odyssey, our students and their needs always occupy the centre stage and all the efforts of the institution are directed towards them.

I strive hard to carry over earnestly the lasting legacy of accomplishments earned by the institution. With the wholehearted cooperation and support of all the stakeholders, I endeavour to make the college an institution of excellence in all spheres of knowledge to lead her to greater glory, honour, and distinction.
