The location of the college on the bank of Morhar River in the lap of the nature and its quality of teaching, facilities for extra-curricular activities including NSS and sports and availability of big playgrounds inside the campus make it the most desired institution thought out the district.

Thought speedy progress and satisfactory growth have been witnessed during the short period, but in the Modern Age of Globalization and Information Communication technology, the college has stll to cover a long distance.NAAC Accreditation is still before us for which infrastructure needs to be uplifted. I always keep the following lines of the great English poet, Robert Frost in my mind for constant inspiration.
The woods are lovely dark and deep
But I have promises to keep
And Miles to go before I sleep.
May God lush the future of S.M.S.G College with infinite happiness!
