Principal’s Message:

It is a great honor for me to be the Principal of such a prestigious Education institution which is ranked in top 5 government colleges of the province with respect to its area, faculty, students, research, sports and academic programs. It is progressing by leaps and bounds and will soon become one of the best Educational Institution of the province. I feel proud that it is the first choice of students of Charsadda for BS Programs.

I would like to advise all the students to fully concentrate on their studies and to actively take part in the co-curricula activities in the college. I also advise all students of the college to avoid participation in the so-called students’ federations. Being Principal of the college, I also request all parents to have a vigilant eye on their children and to keep close liaison with college administration regarding thei academic progress of their children.

Finally, I implore the political leaders of the District to play their role in the development of the college and making it free of students’ politics. I pray to GOD to bless this college, its staff and students.
