In 1988, with meager strength of sixteen students, Govt. College, Seema embarked on its new tryst with destiny having engraved motto in its heart to “Bring Transformation through Education”. ‘A Dream-an Urge’ was there to cater a stage to the ‘Pahari talent’ whose echoes were earlier unheard to the world due to the lack of Higher Education in the close locale. Out went the geographical, economical and social backwardness, not surprisingly, faster growth soon followed. Now, this college has emerged as a fully-fledged institution, having Humanities, Commerce, Science, BCA, PGDCA, IGNOU, and various Add-on Courses as major streams of learning. The present College Campus is spread over an area of approximately 3.35.94 hectare, having excellent existing infrastructure like Administrative Block, Arts & Science blocks, Auditorium- cum- Library, Girls & Boys hostels, Playground, Staff Quarters and other supporting infrastructure. The college is expanding its wings slowly and slowly and it is still in growing stage. The year 2013, witnessed the landmark event of completion of twenty five years of its triumphant journey, being commemorated with the observance of grand “Silver Jubilee Celebration-2013” by the college fraternity. This multi-faculty institution has been marching forward very confidently aided by timely and gradual expansion of the goal-oriented and value added facilities-be it academic, co-academic or infrastructural. The college thrives on a unique blend of retaining traditional culture and values and at the same time incorporating technological advancements as well as creating a consciousness about rights and duties towards the nation ,which have been fully internalised by the stakeholders.
The immortal line by Alfred Tennyson, “the old order change, yielding place to new” reflects the vision of the college founders, dreamers, promoters and executors to rigorously ‘Step-ahead,’ for adding more successful years to the plethora of its golden journey. In present times, a paradigm change is being felt at each aspect of the educational progress. There are enormous geographical, social, and economical challenges; however, growing consistently would require a single-minded consensus about the primacy of education with the clear understanding that with education, it is possible to remove illiteracy, gender imbalance, poverty and deprivations due to marginalization on the basis of caste, class, gender, region, ethnicity etc. that the majority of people suffer from. We strongly believe that students are valuable assets, “the higher they go; the higher goes their Alma mater”. Our college ensures quality higher education for the future generations as a key to unlock the golden door of freedom and a way to become promised citizens of land. Govt.PG College Seema is presently known for its academic excellence, intellectual vigour, cultural and moral sensitivity.

Whether it is in terms of talent, we need time to demonstrate to the world what we can achieve given the right environment and policy framework. Govt.

An “Open Book" and the “Rising Sun "The Open book symbolizes the learning whereas the Rising Sun symbolizes that education will lead the people from darkness to light, ignorance to knowledge; from unknown to known paths. The open book also communicates the message that the education shall be made available to all those who were deprived of it so far. The concept of the current logo is based on a line from the Sanskrit shloka : Tejasvi navadhitamastu. This line, derived from the peace invocation of several Upanishads, translates as: “Let our (the teacher and the taught) learning be radiant”.
(AUM saha navavatu, saha nau bhunaktu Saha veeryam karvaavahai Tejasvi naavadhitamastu maa vid vishaa va hai AUM shaantih, shaantih, shaantih)
Let us together be protected and let us together be nourished by God’s blessings / Let us together join our mental forces in strength for the benefit of humanity /Let our efforts at learning be luminous and filled with joy, and endowed with the force of purpose/Let us never be poisoned with the seeds of hatred for anyone / Let there be peace and serenity in all the three universes…- Invocation from Taittiriya Upanishad
Students are valuable assets, the higher they go; the higher goes their Alma-mater……. Because of this belief student welfare is the centre of our world here.
Knowledge alone can liberate, transform and elevate mankind. Knowledge is the ultimate power that helps us to shake the shackles of Ignorance and be free. Every individual has the ability to attain excellence through knowledge and with knowledge one can become professional graduate capable of developing knowledge, self, society and nation.
