About RSIGST, formerly IIGST Siliguri Chapter

From its very inception RSIGST, formerly IIGST, has taken a community based approach and a vision to implement quality education to empower the people. Siliguri chapter of RSIGST is also looking forward to the same intension not only to support the students of Surya Sen college but also for the whole North-Bengal. 

A NAAC accredited, ISO certified comprehensive institution, Surya Sen Mahavidyalaya offers active learning in a vibrant cordial atmosphere where students connect the classroom and their world. With a focus on undergraduate studies, on the auspicious day of September 15, 1998, the College had embarked on its official journey for conducting degree courses in Arts, Science and Commerce streams under the governance of the Organising Body.

Being affiliated to the University of North Bengal, this institution started functioning in the Campus of Siliguri College till its new construction in Surya Sen Colony area became functional in July 2000. Although the College is situated in the suburbs, it has a fair connectivity and accessibility from various parts of the city as well as neighbouring rural areas. Now it has become a natural choice and preferred destination for students from different parts of North Bengal and other areas. This college has an excellent teaching faculty with highly qualified and well experienced staff. Teachers are full time and students receive special attention from them with regular internal assessment system, counseling and mentoring. The fairly good results in the university examination are due to dedicated, constant effort both by the faculties and the students. The teaching aids used by the staff are modern and help the students to learn the subjects thoroughly. Parents-teacher meetings are held periodically and students’ performance is furnished to the parents directly. Feedback of Students and Guardians is mandatory in every academic session.

Initiation of IGNOU Study Center since the last academic session has enabled Students to choose further option. This campus is perpetually in motion, and the campus description is not a mere backdrop, it is the foreground of the future. To enhance the capabilities of students on emerging technologies, SSM has signed an MOU with IIGST on 13 sept, 2022 and has started their journey through an workshop.
