Swami Vivekananda believed, ‘Education is the manifestation of the perfection already in man.’ The college has come to be known for its emphasis on ideals and values of Swami Vivekananda, which are inculcated in its pupils. A range of enriching culture and sports activities throughout the year add a dimension of team effort and collective enterprise in the allround development of personalities of students at Vivekananda. We at Vivekananda aim to impart education by which character is developed and the mind achieves a broader perspective to enable our students to look upto wider horizons and become honest and responsible citizens of the country.
“We want that education by which character is formed, strength of mind increased, the intellect is expanded, and by which one can stand on one’s own feet. With such an education, women will solve their own problems”.
– Swami Vivekananda
