Seshadripuram Educational Trust (SET), a Public Charitable Trust, was established in the year 1980. The parent body Seshadripuram Educational Association, was registered in 1944.
Proving this statement true, it all began in 1930 when two women educational enthusiasts took up a noble initiative. In the erstwhile posh locality of Seshadripuram, Smt. Anandamma and Smt. Seethamma started a primary School. It was a Mangalore -tiled, two-room centre with 20 children. That humble beginning today has become an integral part of the main campus of Seshadripuram College. It can be proudly stated that Seshadripuram Group of Institutions was founded originally as a- 'start-up' initiative by these two women entrepreneurs. The rest is History.
