“Education is the movement from darkness to light.”

“Achievers never express themselves but their achievements speak for them”. True to this adage, today, our college occupies a pride of place in the story of socio-economic development of this backward region.
I deem it, my proud privilege, to be associated with this great institution since my student days.
I wish my students and colleagues, all the best, in their endeavours to develop their own careers and in the process take the institution to greater heights.
I appeal to all students, faculty and staff to work hard and contribute their mite for development of our college.
Let us together, make our esteemed Rayagada Autonomous College, one of the best institutions of higher education.
