Harimohan Ghose College was established in 1963, by the scions of the Ghose family of Fatehpur , Garden Reach with the help of the residents of the area to provide the fruits of Higher education to the students of the area who then were detached from proper Kolkata. So years passed by the College become a centre of higher learning for many who unfortunately came from less privileged background. The College with its motto From Darkness to Light And More Light, has tried its best to fulfill the goals for which this College was setup. Now having completed so many years of service to the society, the College can claim to have a history yet a history which need not be quoted but understood by all well wishers and stake holders of the College.

To all students of this College including those who would start their journey to Higher education from this College may appeal is be punctual, be regular, be attentive , be inquisitive , ask questions and always have ambition for all of you with young minds can soar to the skies
