Dr. Nitte Shankara Adyanthaya Memorial First Grade College, Nitte

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you all to Dr.Nitte Shankara Adyanthaya Memorial First Grade College – a unique place with people from diverse cultures.

Our college was established in the year 1988 by the Nitte Education Trust. With a permanent affiliation to the Mangalore University and offers credit based semester scheme of B.Com(G)., B.Com (Vocational), B.Sc. and BBA programs. The college has been re-accredited by National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) with ‘A’ Grade in 2016.

Our college is recognized as a leader in teaching and learning and student relationships. We have a safe social and physical environment that helps all our students learn and succeed. With 600+ students, we provide more personal support and greater access to opportunities in student's chosen fields of interests.

We have 16 Student clubs such as Commerce, Management, Science, Debating and Quiz, Literary and Wall Magazine, Cultural and Sports etc. which encourage all our students to develop high expectations about themselves, their work and their behavior. We have introduced soft skills training, industrial visits and survey based mini projects to students which help them to develop research based study, practical input, leadership, communication skills and attitude that have the potential to make someone a good student and compatible with the requirement of professional world.

The way we inspire success is through an excellent teaching staff who are dedicated to ensure each and every student to excel.

Our students are imparted all round education so that they become multidimensional professionals rather than uni-dimensional. In my view, acquiring information is no longer the main focus of education; instead the main aim of education is to build the powers of human mind and spirit. We believe in providing our students an environment, rich in knowledge and supportive for their extra-curricular interest. We aim to evaluate our student on the basis of their physical, mental, social, emotional and intellectual development.

In a world that records perseverance, resilience, initiative, problem-solving and co-operation, our students leave well prepared for tertiary education, vocational training and complement.

I am proud of the significant accomplishments of our students and the results our college has achieved in being a better choice in education.
