The "Blue Lagoon" star, Brooke Shields graduated from the establishment with a French literature degree in 1987 and she's returning to the school to speak at the annual Class Day event.

Class Day co-chair Nikhil Basu Trivedi says, "We wanted to bring in someone from outside the political and news sphere - in which many recent Class Day speakers have been involved - and to have an alumna as our speaker is particularly exciting. Ms. Brooke Shields knows exactly what we have experienced over the past four years."

An email sent to seniors about Brooke Shields' speech reads, "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."

Brooke Shields will speak at the university on 30 May.
