On a cold Saturday in late February, a small ceremony was held on campus to mark the 135th anniversary of the birth of the women considered to be the founder of modern Ukrainian literature.

Nataliya and Serhiy Kostyuk, a PhD student in Sociology, laid a small bouquet of roses at the feet of a statue of Lesya Ukrainka that was given to the University in 1976. Ukrainka, whose real name was Larysa Kosach-Kvitka, was a poetess who also wrote dramas, prose, literary criticism and socio-political essays.
