Beelchalan Shahid Shamsuzzoha Govt. College was established in 1969 after the name of first martyr intellectual Dr. Mohammad Shamsuzzoha, the then professor and proctor of Rajshahi University. Earlier in 1965 the intelligentsia of this locality started dreaming to establish a college to facilitate the higher education for the students who are poor but meritorious and intelligent. Establishing a college was a difficult matter and it took long four years to manage the necessary funds and other necessary things, papers and documents for operating a college. On 18 February 1969, Dr. Shamsuzzoha was brutally killed by Pakistani army when he was trying to bring the students of Rajshahi University back to the campus from the Rajshahi-Natore Highway in order to save their lives for they were staging demonstration violating the section 144 imposed by the Government. His great sacrifice touched the heart of the students, political leaders as well as the general people of this locality which is why they took the decision to name the college after the name of Dr. Mohammad Shamsuzzoha without second thought.
