Mangaluru, 07 Feb: Sri Kshetra Dharamastala Dharmadhikari Dr D Veerendra Heggade inaugurated the 150 years milestone celebration of University College, here on Thursday, February 6.


Speaking on the occasion, Dr Heggade said, ‘The vice-chancellor has shown that government colleges can deliver the best. I was very curious to see how this college will celebrate its 150th year milestone. The event is beautifully organized with exhibition of collections of antique, coins, stamps and many more,’ said Dr Heggade.


‘This college has given various political leaders and poets, who are working in various streams and are contributing for the upliftment of the society. There is difference between knowledge and information. If you understand the feeling of information, it can be later converted into knowledge. University College should preserve knowledge and distribute it. Today, for the sake of the promotion, post graduation and PhD is being done at the same time. Knowledge is also the key for this stream,’ he added.



‘Colleges should create opportunities for students for employment where students can develop themselves on their own,’ emphasised.


MLA U T Khader said, ‘The alumni and students are lucky enough to study at Mangalore University College as it creates a platform to excel in your career. This college has given various leaders who have achieved greater heights in their life. With that aim, students should strive hard to taste success in life. Being in opposition, we will try our best to bring out a subsidized food canteen to the college which will help the needy.’
