  1. Tsvetan Iliev ’06: After My First Day at ACS, I Wanted to Switch Schools. I’m Glad I Didn’t

    June 25, 2019 by American College of Sofia

    “Some people probably remember me as the kid who would always be drawing cars in his notebooks, instead of paying attention in class.” (laughs)

  2. Теодора Димова: Да бъдем като децата!

    June 5, 2019 by American College of Sofia

    Да бъдем като децата е така естествено за човека, както да яде, когато е гладен, да пие вода, когато е жаден. Децата имат естественото, вроденото знание, че смъртта не е краят, затова и не се страхуват от нея, не се страхуват от животните, не се страхуват от хората. Изпитват доверие във всеки човек. Не се интересуват богат ли или беден, красив ли е или грозен, не забелязват нито бръчките, нито старостта му.

  3. Ivan Ivanov ’18: You Cannot Compare a Medal to Making Someone Feel Proud of You

    June 18, 2018 by American College of Sofia

    If something doesn’t go the way you hoped it doesn’t mean it’s going wrong, it just means it should have taken another direction.

  4. Theodora Konetsovska ’97: Keep Your Accent and Your Last Name!

    June 14, 2018 by American College of Sofia

    Be brave. When you wonder if to do or not, do. If you question whether to go or not, go. When you hesitate if you should speak up or not, speak. Explore, jump in, have an opinion, disagree, defend your beliefs. Now is the time to challenge, experiment, figure out where you stand and where you want to go.

  5. ACS Trustees Ann Ferren and Avis Bohlen – Two Harvard-Radcliffe Alumnae at Lamont

    March 8, 2018 by American College of Sofia

    Harvard in those years was definitely the richer, more privileged institution; Radcliffe the poor relation. The boys’ accommodations in the Harvard houses were much nicer and more spacious than our shoe-box rooms in the Radcliffe dorms. We had to wait on tables and clean our own rooms; no work was required of the boys.

  6. Георги Шопов – пазителят на историята на рода Чакалови

    February 19, 2018 by American College of Sofia

    „Някои нравствени категории бяха много по-задължителни за учениците от колежа, отколкото за връстниците им от другите училища на страната. Нека вземем за пример така нареченото преписване по време на класни писмени упражнения и изпити. За нашите американски учители дори името на това явление беше друго: наричаха го не „copy”, a „cheat”  т. е. „измама“. Нещо повече: наказанието за таква простъпка беше автоматично изключване от колежа. Подобна измама се считаше за непростимо престъпление, което не можеше да се търпи в никаква степен.”

  7. In Memoriam: Ivailo Dimitrov (1966-2017)

    Ivo sought out and treasured the inner light in the hearts and minds of everyone around him.

  8. Maria Grozdanova ’18: Happiness Is Perfect in Its Own Way

    December 20, 2017 by American College of Sofia

    At the beginning of 8th grade, I thought Not a single chance for me, a fresh new student here, to go and perform in front of everyone. None of my friends were going to join the group, so I thought Next year, maybe. But once I saw the BG Drama performance, I was so amazed by the work of the students, I clearly remember Matthew Loukanoff in the main part, I knew I was definitely going to join the year after that.

  9. Kosara Tsoneva ’17: Always on the Go

    July 6, 2017 by American College of Sofia

    I’m one of those people who are just energetic and like to be always on the go, who once that they’ve started with something, want to see it through. Breaks are needed, I take them sometimes, but I get pretty bored (laughing).

  10. Carl Djerassi, the Courageous

    July 5, 2017 by American College of Sofia

    Thinking outside the box is a prerequisite to a scientist of his caliber, but he set off to live outside the realm he had mastered, the realm he was recognized for. He set foot further than biochemistry, he ventured into entrepreneurship, into art, into public life. And here we want to pay tribute to his courage. Because in this pursuit of a different calling – and it was a public pursuit, – one’s very identity can be at stake.
