Brief History

Dr. S. N. N. Govt. Degree College, Vedikhal made a beginning in July 1979 with a couple of rooms in Govt. Intermediate College Vedikhal with only 13 students. It began with the departments of Hindi, Political Science, English, Geography, Defence Studies and Economics with affiliation from HNB Garhwal University for under graduate degree level. ‘Rome was not built in a day’ and is a fitting statement for the journey of the college since its humble beginning in July 1979. Since then it has been a long and an eventful journey to its present status as the numero-uno college of the region.

This all had been possible with the untiring efforts of (Late) Dr. S. N. Nautiyal, the then MLA, Karnprayag constituency.

In 2005 the college was shifted to the new building. In the year 2007-08 a B.Ed course in self-finance mode was introduced in the college with an intake of 100 students.
