Sree Ayyappa College for Women came into existence in the year 1970. The institution established with the motto, ‘Siksha Dharmena Shobathe’ (Education Sparkles through Moral Excellence) is run by Sree Ayyappa Educational Society. The Society formed by the Malayalam speaking linguistic minority of Kanyakumari District and registered under the Societies Registration Act of 1955 founded a junior college for men in the year 1969. But as the greater need was for the higher education of women students, the Management with the consent of the affiliated Madurai University converted the institution into a women’s college in the next year. The college was vested with linguistic minority status in 1987. It is a boon not only to the young women students of linguistic minority but also to students of all disadvantaged communities.
