Godavaris Mahavidyalaya Has Now Become An Adult By Completing Fifty Years Of Its Busy Life. It Has Sustained Itself And Developed Through The Various Upheavals On Its Way Which Are Natural On The Part Of Any Institution . Maturity Brings Stability And Then Only Development Occurs. This Matured Institution Had Its Beginning Long Back On 26th July 1963. Though The Real Beginning May Be Traced Back To The Year 1930, When Godavaris Vidyapitha Was Founded To Pay Respect To Pandit Godavaris, The Great Soul Of The Soil. The Founding Fathers Of The Institution Had A Great Desire To Impart Education On The Noble Ideals Of The Ancient System . The Motto Of An Educational Institution Is To Enlighten The Individuals And Remove The Encircling Gloom Of Ignorance . The Young Generation Must Move From "Darkness To Light" And From "Untruth To Truth" Through Education. That Is The Objective Of Our Institution Too. It Is Situated In A Semi Urban Area Amidst Unparalleled Scenic Beauty. Our Institution Is Free From Corrupting Influences And Evils Of Urban Atmosphere. Words Would Fail To Express Our Gratitude To The Thousands Of Donors Who Are Spread All Over Orissa Ranging From An Ordinary Agriculturist And A Relatively Not So Important Businessman To Industrialists Of Far Off Mayurbhanj.
