CHERNIVTSI

 

The academic corporation Bukovina is a color-wearing and freely fencing academic association in Chernivtsi. It is currently the only student corporation in Ukraine that follows an old German student tradition according to the Comment.

The colors of corporation are explained with: intellect, honor and noble (dark blue), energy and action (red), eternal youth of the Bukovinian mind (green).

A.C. Bukovina stands out by emphasizing old Austrian and German ideas as well as national and cultural diversity. This is also expressed in the slogan “Viribus Unitis!” (With United Forces!), which was the same of Emperor Franz Joseph. The seat of the corporation is the German House in the Olha Kobylyanska Street.

A.C. Bukovina always strives to preserve the corporate movement in Chernivtsi, welcomes all fraternities in the city (especially color-wearing ones) and tries to establish contacts with other academic corporations abroad.
