Govt. Degree College - CEGDC

The Centre of Excellence, Government College, Sanjauli, Shimla-6 takes pride in its rich history and heritage. The imposing Structure of the main building, currently housing Administrative Block and Computer Laboratories reminds one of the days of Yore, when the jungle of concrete buildings had not defaced the Queen of Hills. The College was constructed way back in April 1869 by Harriet Christina Tytler as an institution for industrial orphanage under name of Himalayan Christina Orphanage and named as North Stoneham. Later in 1872, the same institution was reconstituted as the Mayo Industrial School for female orphans and order girls of European extraction. However, later it was rebuilt at a grand cost of Rs. 73545/- and was opened for use on March 1, 1905 during the Lieutenant-Governorship of Sir Charles Rivoz, K.C.S.I., and the Episcopate of the Reverend George Alfred Lefroy, D.D., the third Bishop of Lahore. The Structure was designed by the Architect A. Gaddock Esq. and built by the builder, Messrs. Rivertt and Sons. After independence, this institution was converted into a B.Ed/B.T. College for girls affiliated to Punjab University, till it attained its present position. The college is undoubtedly making rapid strides in the fields of education which is implicit from the fact that it is running three streams-Arts, Science & Commerce, besides and undergraduate course in Computer Applications, However, B.Com. and B.C.A. Courses were started in 2006. The B.C.A. (Bachelor in Computer Application) courses are being run under the self-financing scheme. In Arts faculty thirteen subjects are being taught in this college.
