30th Anniversary

In Fall 2021 AUBG is going to celebrate the many successes we have achieved throughout the years. Celebrate with us!

In September 1991, the American University in Bulgaria opened its doors with a first-year class of 208 students and 16 full-time faculty members. The first American-style, undergraduate institution in Eastern Europe, AUBG is a unique cooperative venture established with the support of the US and Bulgarian Governments. Since then, the lively town of Blagoevgrad in southwest Bulgaria has become a cradle of academic excellence, creativity, and cultural diversity. Nowadays, around 1000 curious, committed, and talented students from about 40 countries come together to live and study in a supportive and secure community and immerse themselves in our first-rate American liberal arts education. World-class faculty members come from top schools in five continents to create an innovative and real-world learning environment that’s unique in Europe. AUBG alumni have a reputation for success in their careers and in graduate studies, with many going on to the world’s leading schools and employers, and all being valued members of our tight-knit global network of alumni.
