The Ukrainian Catholic University's motto of "Be Thyself" is exemplified by its integrity, honesty and spirituality in all that it does.  In a country riven by corruption, this remarkable University is almost like "a country within a country", striving to provide a rounded education for Ukraine's leaders of tomorrow with a commitment to the highest of moral ideals and excellence!  Long may this continue!!!
