It was the year 1978. Higher Education had not yet spreaded to the rural Odisha. Sarankul, a small but beautiful village of Nayagarh district awoke from its long sleep. Under the proper guidance and well- organized steps of Sj. Artabandhu Mishra an advocate of Odisha High Court in those days, a higher educational institution named SARANKUL COLLEGE was established in order to cater to the higher educational need of this area, a Shaiva Pitha famous for LADUBABA .
On the 25th june of 1978,the inception ceremony of the college was held in campus of the then Sanskrit Tol of Sarankul with Sj.Prafulla Kumar Maharana as its 1st Principal. The first cry of the new born infant was heard on the 27th day of July that year. It was the first day of starting of classes.

In this age of IT , INTERNET has grasped almost all the spheres of life. There is not a single field which is free from its clautch. I feel immense joy that Sarankul College is now on INTERNET and we are able to interact with the outside world. Our College is a small but beautiful one. With a noble VISION to prepare and empower the rural youth to succeed in a challenging world, the college has its planned MISSION.From nothing we have achieved something. But, the more is yet to be. For this, united effort is essential. Let us all hope for the best and march forward still achieving, still pursuing.
