The first President and the founder of KTU Students’ Union was Aušrys Kriščiūnas (aka Tynta) in1993–1995. The Union was established during the transitional period of Lithuanian history, when an empty space for students’ initiatives appeared and everything started with students events. The first and the only Lithuanian student festival in Kapitoniškės took place at that time.
The first President of KTU Students’ Union, who later became the president of Lithuanian National Union of Students, was Svajūnas Jakutis. During 1997–1999, while leading KTU Students’ Union, he contributed to serious changes for Lithuanian students.
KTU Students’ Union, the largest student organisation in Kaunas, was established in 1993 and acquired legal status of a public organisation on 17 July 1997.
Under the leadership of Jakutis, after the change of laws, the organisation was re-registered. At that time, great team was brought together, organising numerous seminars, conferences and meetings. The real mission of the organisation was comprehended, the objectives were streamlined and the ways to achieve them were established.
