Jagannath Barooah College
Jagannath Barooah College (Assamese:জগন্নাথ বৰুৱা মহাবিদ্যালয়) (popularly known as J.B. College) is located in Jorhat, Assam, India. It was founded in 1930 and was accredited by National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC), India in 2003.
It was named Upper Assam College at first and later Jorhat College on 4th September, 1930. On 25th June 1938, during a meeting under the then president, Chandradhar Barooah, it was renamed to the present Jagannath Barooah College in recognition of the commodious building 'Borpatra Kutir' along with the previous land owner, Murulidhar Barooah. Murulidhar Barooah had inherited this property from his grandfather Jagganath Barooah, who was the first graduate of Upper Assam in 1872 from Presidency College, Calcutta.
