Rohtas Mahila College, Sasaram is the brain child of the then DM Mr. S.P. N. Sinha who made herculean effort to mobilize the educationists, businessman, beaurourrats, intellectuals and prominent citizens of the locality to a single platform to deal with the issues emerging out of the alarming rate illiteracy  among  the  girls  of  the  region.  During  the deliberation  a  consensus  was  emerged  among  them  that  the  only remedy to this growing menace is to set up an institution catering to their interest who are largely marginalized and no longer contribute significantly for the betterment of society for want of formal education. His dream soon acquired a concrete shape and Rohtas Mahila College Came into existence in the year 1975 on the 2nd of October to mark the birth anniversary of the father of the nation, Mahatma Gandhi .

Initially  academic  activities  were  carried  out  with  23  students  and teachers which picked up gradually in the next session with the member of students bounced to 150. A door-to-campaign was launched to gear up the residents of the locality to join the massive literacy drive and get the girls admitted. The campaign received a positive response with students  making  a  beeline  to  get  themselves  enrolled.  The administration too swung into action allotting a small tract of land to accommodate  the  huge  gathering  acknowledging  the  long-awaited demand of the students and teaching and non-teaching fraternity as well. Initially the college had to face huge financial crunch to erect a building on tract of land allotted to it to meet the growing demand of the  students.  An  appeal  was  made  to  the  people  to  contribute generously for this noble cause.

It  soon  paid  dividend  with  people  from  different  walks  of  life expending a helping hand to  see  the dream project acquiring  a concrete   shape.  Prominent   among  those   who   contributed significantly include former Lok Sabha speaker Mrs. Meera Kumar and parliamentarians Mrs. Kanti Singh and Mr. Muni Lal.

By the active cooperation of the respectable citizens of the locality the  institution,  first  among  the  girls  colleges  falling  inside  the territory of Bihar from its boundary touching UP in the west and stretching upto Jharkhand in the east. Our journey still continues unabated since we have just stood erect on our feet.

We have still to cover a long distance. We are craving for P.G. classes in various subjects, hostel facility for the girls, computer courses and adequate communication facility for girls which are given top priority in  our  agenda.  Girls  coming  from  far-off  regions  have  to  face immense hardships in order to come to the college for want of adequate  communication  facility.  Therefore  we  are  seriously considering providing bus facility to the students to redress their problem. It will also help the institution kill two birds with a single shot. Besides providing communication facility the institution will ensures the safety and security of the students which is also our prime concern.
