Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”  ― Nelson Mandela


  With great pleasure I welcome you to Gurukula PU College, Koteshwara, Kundapura. You will feel honoured to be part of this esteemed and academically rich institute. I am proud to lead an institution with a spectacle of fine blend of tradition and modernity. Its modernity is reflected through the stellar record of academic excellence, Gurukula is a one of the best college in Coastal Karnataka.


  I believe, each educational institute has its own character, its own distinct and identifiable 'personality'. The integration of academic excellence and profusion of quality coaching for IIT, Medical & engineering aspirants is one of Gurukula PU College’s unique strengths.


  Our college started its corporate life with handful of students, limited faculty, little property, but a determined mission of imparting higher education and keeping cultural heritage intact. It is our collective efforts that make this college such a vibrant place to learn, to work, and to explore. Students choose our college for many reasons: the reputation of our faculty, the quality of our academic programs, the individual attention they will receive from faculty and staff, and the wealth of campus activity.

  Academic excellence has been the keyword of the college since its inception, with all its results setting new records. Closely supervised study in an intellectually and culturally stimulating environment, together with an emphasis on student welfare and close contact between staff and students, ensures that individual students get maximum support. Backed by a system which ensures that quality is constantly monitored and standards are reviewed and maintained.


  Our college values the development of personal leadership in each student. Challenged by outstanding faculty and a modern, value-centred curriculum, students are fully prepared to contribute to society and to be effective leaders of social change based on the ethical values and principles taught in the college.


  Remember what you are doing now, you are doing for tomorrow. You are building a portfolio of knowledge and skills pertinent to your vision of your own future in the world. My staff and I will be pleased to assist you to realize that vision in every way we can. Nevertheless, training for tomorrow is about empowering yourself.


  The prospectus introduces you to Gurukula PU College and provides detailed information of courses offered, fee structure, general rules and eligibility criteria etc. I advise you to read this document carefully and once you join, I expect you to cooperate in our mission of providing a new dimension to education. Furthering your education at Gurukula PU College will be beneficial in gaining a fulfilling career and enable you to contribute positively to our dynamic world.


  It has been said that, "We perfect nature, not by undoing it, but by adding to it what is more than nature, and directing it towards aims higher than its own". It is in this manner that we make our contribution everlasting, a bequest to the individual, to the community, and finally, to the country.


Time waits for no one- Time stops for none,

Your excuses will not stop down time-Your indecisions will not delay time.

Your complaining will not stop time- Your regrets will not turn back time.


  So don’t squander your time in anger, regrets, worries and hatred because time will not turn back and cry along with you. It is time to let go of the past and stop worrying about the future. Your only time is NOW. So make sure you spend time with the right purpose, with right deeds and with right people. Let the teacher make your future shining bright. Good wishes and God’s choicest blessings to all.
