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.

KTU SU consists of 9 Faculty Students’ Unions (FSU). Each of them has its own members, events and traditions. In most cases, Faculty Students’ Union is the first intermediary between the student and the Faculty administration. They are students who introduce freshmen to the University life by mentoring first-year students’ academic groups, by organising camps and freshmen welcoming meetings.

FSU is a place which students can always turn to whenever they have any concerns, for example, disagreements with teachers or study problems. It is also a place for those, who just have a lot of ideas that FSU can help realise.
