Thuringia's coat of arms

The Corps Thuringia Jena is an obligatory and color-bearing student union in the Kösener SC-Verband (KSCV). The corps brings together students and alumni of the Friedrich Schiller University, the Ernst Abbe University of Applied Sciences and former students of the University of Hamburg. The members of the corps are called Jenenser Thuringians or, as of ancient times, Jenschthuringians.

Beer duchy of Lichtenhain
Thuringia in the IG (1950)

The Corps Thuringia was founded on June 6, 1820 by students from the University of Jena . It was part of the tradition of the beer state and brought the famous beer duchy of Lichtenhain into being. It was named after Lichtenhain (Jena) , where it was held.

Thuringia and the Corps Brunsviga Göttingen are among the founders of the black circle . The fact that she ruled it at the time of the German Empire is impressively demonstrated by the district policy of Saxonia Leipzig . Thuringia and Brunsviga have been part of one of the oldest cartels since 1846 .

Since all student associations were forbidden in the German Democratic Republic , Thuringia had to relocate to West Germany . In the post-war period it was one of the first corps to reopen active operations, on June 6, 1948 in the Hamburg Seniors' Convent . In January 1950 she was one of the 22 corps that joined together in the interest group and prepared the reconstitution of the KSCV. The IG was initiated by Otto Klonz from Thuringia, a lawyer in Cologne-Marienburg.

In the summer of 1990, Thuringia decided as the first student association in Germany to return to its original seat in the then still existing GDR. She sold the house in Hamburg and resumed corps operations in Jena before reunification .

As a member of the Eisenach cartel , Thuringia is one of the most influential corps in the KSCV. In addition, with two targeted gradations per semester, it is probably one of the connections with most of the compulsory graduations.

In 1850, 1859, 1970 and 1999 the Corps appointed the chairman of the oKC. Gustav Bachus, the Königsberg chairman of the oKC in 1894, was also a Thuringian.
