In a special commemoration of our inaugural academic year in 1964, we welcomed back to one of our esteemed alumni, Daniel Friedberg, widely known as Freebo. Renowned for his exceptional talent in guitar, bass, and tuba, Freebo showed us his amazing range as an artist, dazzling us on-stage in Heidelberg alongside Alice Howe.

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

Through his music, we relived the the spirit of the past and embraced the vibrancy of the present, proud to celebrate the achievement's of one of our own in an evening filled with music, nostalgia, and the enduring bond of the Schiller community.

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.
