Until 2015, the college operated in the Government Boys Higher Secondary School, Pappireddipatti before transferring to the present location which is a kilometre away from the Pappireddipatti Bus stand. The college has been erected at the foothills of the Shevaroy hills amid surroundings very close to nature. The college began to be regulated as a full-fledged institution from August 2015, with a sprawling campus, scholarly experts of faculty members, well-equipped lab facilities, Library with more than 3000 books and sports equipments which are always kept open for easy access of the students almost everyday.

The institution also encourages the students to actively participate in Social Service activities by motivating them to join clubs and services like National Service Scheme(NSS), Red Ribbon Club (RRC) and Youth Red Club(YRC).
