Principal’s Message

Saraswathi Narayanan College established in 1966 under the aegis of Narayanan Chettiar Trust is a pioneer co-educational institution affiliated to Madurai Kamaraj University. This temple of higher learning is wholly devoted to impart quality education for the upliftment of the oppressed and suppressed community of this part of the country. Located in one of the most backward villages called “Perungudi” in the Madurai district of south Tamil Nadu, the college has made most significant contributions to the development of India.



Duty, Devotion and Distinction are the committed motto of our college and with which the dedicated team of teachers discharge their day-to-day academic responsibilities. The basic objective of our college is to reach the unreached.


Our college cares for the individual development of each and every student. We follow “mentor system” under which each class is put into the multi-pronged web of a teacher. We accord prime importance to the behavioral discipline, moral integrity and cognitive developments of our students. Departments of Youth Welfare, NSS, NCC, Physical Education, Career Guidance Cell, Readers Forum, Red Cross Society, Red Ribbon Club and Centre for Women Empowerment offer integrated services for the multi –facetted developments of our students. Our teachers strive to teach not only academic programmes but also life skills needed for students’ self developments with highly resourceful critical faculty.


My dream and ambition is to make every student of Saraswathi Narayanan College a worthy citizen of India. I vow to steer this college with the unstinted support and contributions of my fellow teachers and staff a model institution for the 21th century India.
