Voorhees College - VC

The Voorhees College had its beginning in the year AD 1898 through the sacrificial efforts of the missionaries of American Arcot Mission (AAM), an offshoot of the Reformed Church of America. The original buildings of the college were built with the sacrificial donation of a large-minded American couple, Ralph and Elizabeth Rodman Voorhees. In memory of that ennobling act this college was appropriately named as Voorhees College. Rev Dr W I Chamberlain served as the First Principal of Voorhees College. Back in the 19 nth century, people in and around Vellore were struggling under the clutches of poverty, ignorance and spiritual backwardness. Missionaries of AAM, compelled by the love of Christ, started this citadel for higher learning. It is their vision that the students who are educated here would build their families, the society and consequently, the nation-at-large. Besides providing quality and affordable education, the college emphasizes the importance of Christian virtues and values. Many a student comes here from the rural areas of Vellore and nearby districts. It is interesting that many of our graduates turn out to be the first graduates in their respective families. Thus the college serves the needy ones of the society, providing a holistic education.
