Rangunia College was established in the centre of Rangunia Upazilla in 1963 to spread the light of education in the north-east Chittagong. At first we would like to express our deep gratitude to Hazi Moulana Ahmed, Mr. Wakil Ahmed Talukder, Dr. Binoy Vushon Dev and Mr. Shantosh Bhuson Das who made their great effort to establish this college. Thirty five kilometers away from Chittagong city this institution is situated on the bank of Karnaphuly surrounded by a panoramic view. With the help of local people specially the local patronizes of learning, social workers, political figures this institution have crossed a long way of fifty years successfully. This centre of learning started its activities in July 1963 with the H.S.C course. In 1965 its full journey was started as a Degree College after getting the approval from Dhaka University. Honours course in Political Science and Management have started recently.
The college code number is 4321 under National University. H.S.C code is 3525. Secondary and Higher Education Directorate Code number is 0210043201.
This centre of learning is working as a lighthouse of the people of hill tracts and the remote areas of Chittagong from the very beginning. This institution is enriched with science laboratory, large library with a large number of books. For the mental development here is a “Debating Club” for the students. For physical development here is a large sports ground with basketball court that is very rare in the rural area. In the field of education, culture and sports this college has gained a unique position in Chittagong.
For the students there are five two-storied buildings covering two acres of land, one administrative building, residential area for the teachers and staffs, dormitory for the bachelor teachers, a large pond covering 01 acre of land, a large play ground of 023 acres. Besides this college is surrounded by 880 acres of cultivable land of its own.
If the government take up this college having a large area enriched with many facilities, the long cherished desire of the local people will be fulfilled and the scope of learning will be enlarged. Not that there is no government college in seven upazillas of northern Chittagong. So we earnestly hope that government will take up this college and it will be a government college of this area very soon.
It was Napoleon who once said "Give me an educated mother, I will give you an educated nation." Only education can help a nation to reach the desired goal of peace, prosperity and financial emancipation. This institution is playing a vital role in imparting quality education. After taking the charge I devoted myself to develop its infrastructure and equip this college with modern facilities. I made a basket ball court in 2012 from N.N.K. Foundation that cost me 754,000/-. At present quality education is impossible without the help of I. T. The government has also emphasized on learning I.T. to make digital Bangladesh. Realizing this Rangunia College has opened a dynamic web-site. I welcome it. Through its opening this college will make all the information available to all. I am delighted and I hope it will be user friendly. I wish more success of the college in future.
