Heartiest welcome on joining Doaba College, Jalandhar , a Multi-Faculty Co-educational Postgraduate Pioneer Institution of North India . The Arya Shiksha Mandal made a tryst with destiny 71 years ago for the spread of value based and quality education in North India. Since then, it has opened colleges and schools in Jalandhar with a mission to emancipate qualitative higher education in the region. You will not only be the part of a great tradition but also join ranks with thousands of alumni who have occupied numerous prestigious positions and contributed greatly to the growth of the nation and society at large. I see Doaba College today, more than just an institution or an organization. It is a way of life that crosses all barriers of caste, creed, race or religion.
The large number of students that seek admission here in professional and traditional courses related to Journalism & Mass Communication, Computer Science & Information Technology, Tourism & Hotel Management, Biotechnology, Commerce & Business Management etc every year is our litmus test of social, parental approval and trust by generations. The unparalleled achievements of our various alumni are a tribute to the high standards of this institution.
The world of knowledge today has exploded the boundaries of nations and continents posing a challenge for one and all to excel each other in the field of innovations and creativity. Education comes from living life, following passions, accessing information, observing, reflecting, and being inspired by teachers. Education is the ability to meet life's situations. Education encompasses teaching and learning specific skills, and also something less tangible but more profound: the imparting of knowledge, good judgment and wisdom.
You can lead a student to college, but you cannot make him to think. The dream begins with a teacher who believes in you, who tugs and pushes and leads you to the next plateau, sometimes poking you with a sharp stick called "truth." A teacher's purpose is not to create students in his own image, but to develop students who can create their own image. An idea can turn to dust or magic, depending on the talent that rubs against it. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child. Doaba College epitomizes and recognizes such a need and promises to fulfill this goal by equipping its students with a potential to excel in all the walks of life. Wishing you a purposeful and bright academic career and comfortable stay in Doaba College.
President, Doaba College Managing Committee
