AUBG 30: Game-Changers

30 years ago, as Bulgaria entered a new chapter in its long history, a group of people from opposite ends of the world came together to establish the American University in Bulgaria. While the country was moving on from its political revolution, it needed a revolution in education, too. The ones behind the idea for AUBG understood that and sparked the flame.

In honor of AUBG's anniversary, we are showing off some of the university's greatest achievements in the past three decades. Here, we've gathered some of the people who make the AUBG community proud. Alumni and students who do not accept the status quo and dedicate their time and efforts to bring change on scales small and large.

And here you can see the major moments in the life of AUBG for the past three decades – what helped make the institution what it is and what will keep moving it “onwards and upwards.”
