    Started as a small Sanskrit School about 135 years ago, later developed into the Town High School.Great patriots like Sri T.T.Krishnamachari, Sri Kasu Brahmananda Reddy, Sri Kotha Raghuramaiah and Sri N.V.L.Narasimha Rao were students of the School. Dr.Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, the then vice-chancellor of Andhra University and later President of India inaugurated the Hindu college in 1935, with a few Science departments and departments of languages. It become a first grade College in 1947.Originally affiliated to Andhra University and later to Nagarjuna University, the College got UGC recognition in 1956 The College has to its credit maximum number of P.G. Courses sanctioned by the University Hindu College affialiated to Nagarjuna University, was established in the year 1935 with an aim to promote education and to impart good values to the student community. The college at present has a strenght of 6000 students is being managed by a recognise body known as Hindu College and High Schools Council comprising member who belong to various rungs of guntur city. 200 years of British rule in India has produced only clerks -if not physically, mentally and attitudinally- and good-for-nothing “educated” householders. The need for ‘man-making' education, as Swami Vivekananda exhorted, had been felt all through the centuries in our country, especially in the Pre-Independence days. Guntur was no exception to the prevailing situation. In those days, Guntur was a small, nevertheless important town inhabited by great people, politicians, lawyers, doctors, literary luminaries, businessmen and educationists. It was a nerve center of activity in several fields, especially political. The contribution of Guntur to Freedom struggle is quite substantial. The visits of the two towering personalities, Mahatma Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru in the 1930s to Guntur and Vijayawada bear the amplest testimony to this. Thus, when everything else was going on well, it was in the field of education that Guntur was just lagging behind. Madras was the only nearby city of reckoning for any well-meaning person to pursue higher education in those days of Composite Madras State. One can guess how affordable it was! It is precisely with this background that Hindu College was established in 1935, by a group of highly educated, patriotic and philanthropic gentlemen of Guntur, with the loftiest ideal of ‘dispelling darkness' from the society and to prevent any further erosion of values and virtues from all walks of life. The motto of our college, “Tamasoma jyotirgamaya”, taken from the “Brithadaranyaka Upanishad”, sumps up all this! 1935 is a historic year in the annals of the ever-growing town, Guntur, which occupies a significant place in Andhra Pradesh. It was in the year 1935 that the Hindu College was started with an aim to serve the community through education by employing time-tested methods of teaching and raising the moral standards of the student community. It was due to the untiring efforts of a group of dedicated men who illustrated the truth that sincerity and teamwork would lead to success in any field. The college has achieved the great heights that its founding fathers envisaged, through a constant and consistent endeavor to give quality education to the student community. The college has been rendering yeoman services to this cause for over 71 years.
