A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE COLLEGE

Cradled in the lap of village, Bahadulapatna, 1 K.m away from the sacred shrine of Lord Nrushinghanath in the east and half a Km. away from Cuttack-Kendrapada road in the south, Bahugram Degree College has walked a long struggled thorny path since it's birth till now to achieve it's primary goal. The long cherished dream for establishing Bahugram Degree College was fulfilled in 1992-93 by a highly spirited humane human being Late Mahendra Biswal, the founder cum secretary when the pressing need of higher education for the students of adjoining areas hunted the thought of him in the premises of Bahugram Juniour College.

The prime of the college was eventful. It was plying with financial crisis but the active support of some local dignitaries energized the founder. To materialize the dream, a college Committee entrusted with the task of raising funds and having other necessary requisites, was formed.

Had been seeing the mirage in the vast stretches of the desert all the staff like thirsty travellers traced the Oasis which quenched their thirst a little when the Govt. of Odisha declared our college as an aided educational Institution on 19th Nov., 2014.
