Rajaram College - RC Kolhapur - RC

Rajaram College enjoys the status of the “Pioneering and Premier Institution” in Southern Maharashtra as it was established in the year 1880. In fact, the high school named after His Highness Rajaram Maharaj was established in the year 1870 and after a decade the same was raised to the status of a college, in the old palace adjacent to Bhavani Mandap in Kolhapur city. Mr.C.H.Candy, an Englishman, took over as the first Principal of this new college, which began with a previous class with merely three students.

The Chhatrapatis of Kolhapur, especially His Highness Shahu Maharaj and His Highness Rajaram Maharaj have been the mainspring for the all-round development of this college. Chh. Rajarshi Shahu Maharaj strongly desired that the “Dnyanganga” should reach the lowest stratum of the society. He looked at this college as a spearhead for the spread of enlightenment among the underprivileged sections of the society in the pre-independence era. Naturally, it opened new avenues for the poor but ambitious youth.

Rajaram College saw a unique administrator in Principal Br. Balasaheb Khardekar, a renowned scholar and a well-known sportsman. Prin. Khardekar devoted himself wholeheartedly to the cause of the college. Consequently, it became a centre of attraction for those who aspired not only for higher education but also all-round personality development. Indeed, he was a “Prince Among Principals”. At present the college has a sprawling campus of 74 acres.Rajaram College is affiliated to the Shivaji University, Kolhapur. It offers the students three-year integrated B. A. and B. Sc. degree courses. “In short, Rajaram College lives upto the expectations of its founders in more ways than one and truly became a pioneering and model institution of higher learning in the state of Maharashtra. Therefore, its role and contribution to the field of Higher Education cannot be underestimated. May this institution continue to burn the torch of ‘HIGHER EDUCATION’ as it has entered the second century of its service to the nation !”
