KGF FIRST GRADE COLLEGE - OORGAUM KGF

Excerpt from my book KOLAR GOLD FIELDS DOWN MEMORY LANE - Paeans to lost glory!!!!
 
 
 
 
 
 
The KGF First Grade College was started in 1962 to cater to the higher educational needs of the predominantly socially challenged communities of KGF comprising mostly of children of the mine workers since they couldn’t afford to send their children to Bangalore or Mysore for their college education.
 
 
 
 
The Government of Mysore established an Undergraduate College known as the KGF First Grade College in Oorgaum in the year 1965, which was affiliated to the University of Mysore and then later to the Bangalore University. This Government run First Grade College admitted every student seeking admission to the Pre-University and Degree Courses irrespective of whichever school they came from, provided they had passed the SSLC and PUC examinations. It was a secular institution where all the students were treated equally irrespective of their social standing and religion.
I was privileged to study in this College for my BA during the years 1969 to 1974. I am grateful to my teachers and lecturers in the college for what I am today.
