About Prof. Syed Nurul Hasan College
A long cherished aspiration and dream of the inhabitants of Farakka and its adjacent administrative blocks came into light with the setting up of our college in the year 1994. Foundation laying ceremony took place on the 15th January' 94, and within a short span of only eight months Prof. Sayed Nurul Hasan College was inaugurated by the then Governor of West Bengal, Hon'ble K. V. Rahgunath Reddy on 3rd October, 1994. Who, in astonishment remarked that he could not imagine such an enthusiastic and mammoth gathering in an inauguration programme of a college. In fact people from all walks of life gathered behind setting up of this educational institution. We received 10 acres of land in an ideal location by the side of N.H.-34, from the Farakka Barrage authority on the basis of long term lease. Name of this college was chosen by the organizing committee, which consisted of D.M., S.D.O., G.M. / FBP, G.M. / NTPC and Ex-M.P.(Jangipur Constituecy) Mr. Abul Hasnat Khan after the name of Prof. Syed Nurul Hasan who died few months back. He was an eminent scholar, world famous historian, advocate of progressive and secular ideology, adorned many posts of national repute. We are proud to have our college after his name. We received whole hearted support, financial and material help from a large section of people to achieve our goal. From its inception we are moving forward step by step. Starting with only two lady lecturers and a few subjects now we have been able to start honours courses in Bengali, Sociology, Geography, History, English, Education, Economics & Pol.
