We are really happy to launch an updated web portal of Sri Bhuvanendra College, Karkala. Having brought to life by a number of visionaries under the leadership of Late Dr. Thonse Madhava Ananta Pai, founder of Manipal group of institutions and having inherited the culture of discipline and devotion and honesty and humility from Late Professor K.D. Kini, the founder Principal, the College stands tall as the monolith of Lord Gomateshwara, who has given name and character to this historical and religious place of pilgrimage. The College has lived a very purposeful and fruitful life for 60 years. Having produced thousands of graduates and also postgraduates, we are sure that this webportal as also this College is a place of pilgrimage to all those old students of the College. We have no doubt that this webportal will register the search of thousands of prospective graduates and postgraduates, for whom it is a dream to pursue their studies in this temple of learning- a recognised centre of education with potential for excellence. I am grateful to Mr. Yogesh, our proud alumnas for taking all pains to make this website comprehensive and attractive. Let’s together try to enable even the last child of this society to secure the best higher education and fulfill her/his dreams. We look forward to constructive and creative suggestions for the betterment of the website as well as the College.
