The hilly region in the North part of West Bengal has always been a centre of attraction for the people of pan India for its discrete and unrivalled beauty of diversified natural landscapes. Government General Degree College at Pedong affiliated to the University of North Bengal has in fact enhanced the charming appeal of the region to a considerable extent. Established in 2015 on 5 acres of space for its smooth functioning, the college is basically situated upon a maiden hill skirted by fresh greeny backdrops, 22 Kilometres away from Kalimpong town. Born out of the tireless efforts of the conscious civil society of Pedong and the good will of the Govt. of West Bengal the institution is really deemed to be a milestone for the educational progress of the region and the surroundings as well.
The college blazes the trail of its journey in 2015 successfully when Shri Navin Poudyal takes over his charge as the Officer-in Charge of the college. Initially, the college starts with the unconditional help from St. George H.S. School but now it has developed into a full-fledged college with an ardent team of teachers under W.B.E.S. The college offers undergraduate courses both Honours Programme and Programme in various Arts and Science subjects. Although there are some natural impediments due to its hilly location, the college is devoted to impart knowledge to the student community and illumine the region and thus would continue to be a great seat of learning.
