Y.S.Arts & K.S.Shah Commerce College was started in 1964 by Maharaja Jaideepsingh of Baria, to give the children of this area an opportunity to get higher education. The college was started with just 44 students. Today we have a strength of about 2000 students.
The college has 6 U.G. departments and 5 P.G. departments, along with fully computerized library. The college encourages activities other than book knowledge- specially in the sports and cultural field. The college has a rich history of achievements in sports and culture. We have produced sportspersons who created the records at state and national level. The students are encouraged to take up N.C.C. and N.S.S., take up social work and hold camps in rural areas and create awareness about health & hygiene, water conservation etc. The college has many alumni in the armed forces and in the field of sports.
Our students are mainly from poor rural background and tribal. We strive to widen their horizon through knowledge, specially the computer and internet, since today even the agriculture sector is competing globally. The education and activities we offer will help and prepare the students to go into the “Big Bad” world. We try to inspire them to think big, dream big and aim high and help provide an education that helps them reach their goals. We try to prepare them to meet the challenges and to find the opportunities.
We strive to make students good, honest, law abiding citizens of India who have the courage of their convictions and stand by their principles. All this is only possible because of the dedication of our faculty members. It is they who have opted to live in a small town, making many personal sacrifices, and are doing a noble job of educating, counseling, supporting and being “friend” to the students. They have formed many committees those interact with the students, Alumni and parents.
I also have the complete support from the members of my board (Baria Higher Education Society) who are all determined and dedicated to realizing the dream of my father to provide a holistic development for the rural people. We try to inculcate in the students Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam’s vision that –
"Dreams are not those you see when you are asleep- dreams are those that keep you awake"
When asked about the definition of success Benjamin Franklin said –
"If even one life has breathed easier because you lived, you have succeeded"
And we believe one day our dreams will come true
