Brook shields Graduated from Princeton University , Actress Brooke Shields, a 1987 graduate of Princeton, will deliver the keynote address at the University's Class Day ceremony on Monday, May 30.
Leaders of the senior class selected Shields -- known for starring roles in the movies "Blue Lagoon," "Endless Love" and "Sahara," the 1990s TV sitcom "Suddenly Susan," and her advocacy for women who suffer from postpartum depression -- from numerous nominees suggested by their classmates.
In an email to seniors, the Class Day co-chairs wrote: "She is a smart, funny and insightful woman who seeks to use her fame and influence to do good in the world, and we are very excited to hear from her on our special day." Shields can connect with graduating seniors, they added, because she continues to embody "a generation of Princetonians before, during and after her time at Old Nassau."
While at Princeton, Shields majored in Romance language and literatures, with a focus on French literature, and graduated with honors. She was a member of the Princeton Triangle Club, the nation's oldest touring collegiate musical comedy troupe, and one of the independent eating clubs, Cap and Gown.
