Soiuz [Союз; Union]. The first Ukrainian student association in Chernivtsi. It was founded in 1875, and existed, except for 1903–5, until 1922, when it was dissolved by the Romanian authorities. Membership varied from 50 to 100 students. The association took part in political and cultural-educational work and published Bukovyns’kyi al’manakh (Bukovynian Almanac, 1885) and the almanac Soiuz (1875–1903, 1905–10). The association’s heads were Dmytro Vintskovsky (1875–9), Stepan Smal-Stotsky (1879–83), Oleksander Kolessa (1891–4), P. Klym, Teodot Halip, Yu. Tevtul, and V. Butsura, among others. When the association was dissolved, its members joined the Sich student societies and Chornomore.
