Avadh Girls' Degree College has a distinguished history. For over 50 years, it has stood as the symbol of quality education. Today it stands proudly as a beacon of light for academic excellence and extra-curricular activities.
Arts Faculty of the College has been Ranked No. 1 in Lucknow by India Today (dated 22, June 2009, page no.40).
The College administration has also kept up with the times and as per the demand of the hour the college opened up an entirely new faculty - the Faculty of Commerce.
The college ventured, with eighty students in the year 2001, for B.Com classes but with the passage of time, reputation soared to the extent that it became imperative for the University to grant another Section in 2003 total being 160 students, but still to cope with increasing pressure, evening classes were opened in 2006.
The college is most sought after by the girl students and rated as second best Commerce faculty in the city by India Today (dated 22 June 2009 page no.48) though it amounts to best if seen exclusively for girl students.
The endeavour of the college administration and the management encompass in its fold the needy, the deserving, the rural and the backward but promising girl students of Lucknow and surrounding areas.
