Schiller International University 60th Anniversary

Shaping Global Leaders since 1964

Join us in commemorating six decades of excellence as Schiller International University marks its 60th anniversary! Since our founding, we've been dedicated to providing exceptional education and shaping the leaders of tomorrow. Explore our journey of growth, innovation, and global impact as we celebrate this milestone.

Friedrich Schiller

Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller (1759–1805), commonly known as Schiller, was a German poet, playwright, and philosopher. He is best known for his impactful contributions to literature and the arts. Schiller's works often explored themes of freedom, justice, and the human spirit, leaving a lasting influence on German literature. The University, named in honor of him, exemplifies the highest standards of ethics and the ideal of the truly educated, multilingual citizen of the world, inspired by his work. 

Schiller's name symbolizes the university's commitment to fostering a rich, global educational experience that embraces cultural diversity and intellectual exploration.

We can't wait to welcome our Alumni Community you back home!

In a special commemoration of our inaugural academic year in 1964, we are delighted to extend a warm welcome back to one of our esteemed alumni, Daniel Friedberg, widely known as Freebo. Renowned for his exceptional talent in guitar, bass, and tuba, Freebo graces the stage in Heidelberg alongside Alice Howe.

Having graced stages alongside legends like Bonnie Raitt, Ringo Starr, and Crosby, Stills & Nash, Freebo's concert promises to be an unforgettable experience. This event not only celebrates our alumni's achievements but also highlights Schiller's commitment to nurturing holistic talents in arts and beyond.

As we relive the spirit of the past and embrace the vibrancy of the present, let's come together to enjoy an evening filled with music, nostalgia, and the enduring bond of the Schiller community.

The night starts with an introductory Aperitif followed by a full-course meal and a DJ for music and dance. The Hall of Mirrors, which remains in its original condition, is where the dinner will take place. Guests must dress in formal/black tie attire. Additionally, our student council photographer will be taking pictures for the duration of the event.
