ACADEMICS » STUDENTS » ALUMNI ASSOCIATION
Raja Peary Mohan College Old Student's Association was formed in 1935, to help the College to overcome the financial crisis it faced at that time. In 1986, during the Centenary Celebration of the College an Alumni Association was formed. However, it ceased to exist after a short while. On 19th September, 2004 the present Alumni Association has been formed in an organized way and the first meeting was held on that day. Over the past one hundred and twenty five years the College is believed to have shaped the minds of Hooghly's ruling elite and radical intellectuals. The present day student of this College can boast the splendor of its past and the glory of its Alumni. Hence a survey of the current situation together with the euphoria associated with the past reveals the contribution of this Institution to the Society in the form of Freedom fighters, Politicians, Physicians, Surgeons, Scientists, Educationists, Bureaucrats, Athletes and what not. The importance and far-reaching effects of the instruction imparted in Raja Peary Mohan College have left a deep impact on the Socio-cultural aspects of the vast hinterland of rural and well as urban areas of the districts of Hooghly, Howrah and North 24 Paraganas.
