Alma Mater

Alma mater comes from two Latin words meaning "nourishing or bountiful mother." Originally it was used as a term by the ancient Romans to describe their Goddesses. In Bulgaria, people use it to refer to Sofia "St. Kliment Ohridski" University, the oldest higher education institution in Bulgaria.
