Forman Christian College University was founded by Dr. Charles Forman in 1864. It started off as the Rang Mahal School, Lahore and soon became the Forman Christian College. For many years, it was a leading institute and was known as a ‘gentleman’s college’. It was a pioneer in many educational achievements in the region. It was the first institute in the subcontinent to offer co-education in 1902, which was a big step in gender equality in education. FCCU has always produced notable scholars, intellectuals, and politicians such as Khan Bahadur and Pervez Musharraf. It gained university status in 2005 and has upheld its legacy of quality education and grooming. Over the years, Forman Christian College University has expanded rapidly and keeps embarking on new endeavors.
The campus of FCCU is a beautiful mixture of the old and the new, and of architecture and nature. The old buildings such as the Susheela building and Sinclair Hall speak volumes about the rich heritage of the institute. The red brick buildings with gardens and fields provide an encouraging environment for students. Recent additions such as the Armacost building show that FCCU is always on the path to progress. The students themselves are taught in a liberal arts method and are thus critical thinkers and quite independent.
Thus, we invite you to experience the charm and heritage of this marvelous institute yourself in FORMUN ‘15.
