A BRIEF HISTORY OF YADAVA COLLEGE

The Yadava Kalvi Nidhi was established by a few leading service minded Yadava Community people in the year 1962. The aim of the fund was to award scholarship and supply books to the deserving Yadava students. Soon the importance of higher education for the socially and educationally backward Yadava Community people was felt which led to the establishment of the Yadava College in the year 1969. The management constituted by the elected members of the general body since 1971 administers the college.

The college was started with two pre-university courses in a temporary building. The Tamilnadu Government generously allotted 40 acres of land under Tiruppalai Panchayat limits in the year 1969. In the same year a hostel building was constructed. The college started functioning in the new premises from 1970-71 academic year.

There are 2912 students who are pursuing Under Graduate and Post Graduate courses. Three Departments- Tamil, Zoology and Commerce- have been elevated as Centres of Higher Research. The National Assessment and Accreditation Council has accredited the college and has given ‘A’ Grade. Madurai Kamaraj University has adjudicated the college as the Best College for three consecutive years. The college has been given autonomous status by the University Grants Commission. The college wishes the young and energetic youth to use this campus for their upliftment.
