We now are proud to present the official election results for a Student Representative to the Board of Trustees.
Apparently, our next representative will be a woman yet again. Congratulations to Marzhan Doszhanova !
The competition was really tough, as she secured the win with only 4 votes (143). Ivan Daskalov has a truly remarkable score with a total of 139 votes. The total number of votes cast today is 282.
As expected the votes cast today were considerably more than on the first round, maybe because of the widespread opinion that the second round will be inevitable with so many worthy candidates.
This time, as always, the vote was cast online, but the majority of students did not participate.
However, on behalf of the entire AUBG community we would like to wish the current Student Representative Alba Gjino great success in all of her future endeavors. And to our newly-elected representative, Marzhan Doszhanova, we look forward to seeing her in business.
Gergana Georgieva, part of the Library staff and AUBG graduate, is initiating a new campaign to raise the awareness about a form of harassment that is very much overlooked by both Bulgarian law enforcement and prosecution.

Their initiative is the first that addresses this issue in Bulgaria.
“Stalking” is a broad term that refers to a combination of ongoing behaviors. It combines the physical action of actually following someone around, taking pictures, sending unwanted gifts, calling on the phone not just the victim, but doing the same to people close to him/her as well. It is hard to define, investigate and therefore hard to prosecute, but often leads to more serious crimes later on. There are laws in the US and many European countries that recognize stalking as a big issue and have acted accordingly, installing the appropriate mechanisms to fight it. In the US, 3.4 million people fall victims to stalking a year, according to the National Center for Victims of Crime’s stalker information resource. Continue reading…Read more...
