College with boths side of a coin

Posted on 14 Jul' 15 by Sankhya Mohapatra
Located in the center of Balasore city, FM College is the 2nd top most College of Odisha. With all the facilities of Canteen and Library it provides immense facilities to the students. Staff faculty are always here as helping hand. Extra curricular activities , Sports events followed by Annual functions conducted every year are a blast. The only negative side is there is no proper placement facility. Nevertheless my College is MY COLLEGE......

"HISTORY Balasore, which evokes an image of intellectual capability of its populace in the country has a glorious history. The name Balasore originated from a Persian word ‘Bala-e-sar’ meaning a sea- shore town.

The town has long been known for its maritime glories, the golden sea-beach and defence establishments at Chandipur. Originally named Balasore College, Fakir Mohan College was established on 6th July 1944. On 2nd August 1949, it was renamed Fakir Mohan College after the great Oriya poet and novelist Vyasakabi Fakir Mohan Senapati.

Lack of Modernity

Posted on 15 Jun' 15 by Rajeev Sahoo
There are just a few computers, no digitalisation. The library has good collection of books but the maintenance is very poor. There is no college canteen and the communication to the college is very poor."
