Tindivanam is an Educationally and economically backward area in TamilNadu. There was no higher educational institution functioning in Tindivanam educational District, exclusively for women. The Villupuram District is the most backward district in women literacy. More than 50% of the students who come out after passing the Higher Secondary examination are women. It was unfortunate that there was no college started exclusively for women folk. Hence the Indira Gandhi Jayanthi Trust has opened the first college for women at Tindivanam to provide different avenues in higher education for women. This Trust has introduced various job oriented courses which are considered as need of the day.
The main object of starting the college is to produce young women graduates packed with knowledge and perfected with character and true sense of human values.
The education imparted to the rural women will make them enlightened to face any challenge in life. The untaped women resources will be identified and will be utilized properly for nation building.
Enshrined within a circle with the picture of Rani of Jhansi Lakshmi Bai, mounted on a horse galloping with her sword out, the college crest depicts her as the personification of valour and partriotism and the inscription below her picture "Be Brave" is her message to fight for the right cause.
At the bottom is the book of knowledge. The lotus flower in a pond represents nature’s gift, the beauty and the seat of Goddess Saraswathi and the Kamatchi vilakku (light) with the flame depicts the real enlightenment, which Swami Vivekananda wanted everybody to get. The burning sun which gives light to everybody irrespective of caste, creed and colour preaches equality and secularism to mankind
"Arise, Awake & Achieve" are the key words taken from the saying of Swami Vivekanandha as motto of the college.
The college is functioning in its own building constructed at Kil-Gudalore village in Tindivanam Taluk, Villupuram District. The new building was dedicated in 2001.
