On May 31st, Lexy Parrill Sarstedt was formally inducted as an honorary member of the class of 2020. In coordination with the virtual commencement ceremony that afternoon, an email was sent to the senior class recognizing her special connection to the class and her unwavering dedication to student life. The class officers select honorary class members after soliciting nominations from the class. Honorary class members are formally registered with the Alumni Association of Princeton University and are extended invitations to participate in all alumni class activities. Lexy will also receive a class jacket, 2020 yearbook, and a certificate of induction.
Arriving in 2017, Lexy’s career at Princeton has aligned with the undergraduate experience of the class of 2020. As part of her duties at the Director of Campus Club, Lexy directs a number of popular student events such as Lawnparties, Dean’s Date celebrations, USG Movies, and Princetoween. She advised the Senior Prom committee this year and has also worked with the Step Sing committee. She serves in a number of student-facing roles as a member of the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students, including the Halftime Retreat, advisor to Princeton Canadians and Simulation Games Union, and helps plan more than 1,500 student organization events held in Campus Club annually. Before being appointed the Director of Campus Club, Lexy served as the Orientation Program Coordinator where she supported Orientation broadly and specifically directed the innovative small-group experience for Fall sport student-athletes.
In reflecting on this honor, Lexy shared that “I’m touched by the kindness and generosity of the class of 2020 for inviting me to join their class. I’ve been consistently impressed by the thoughtfulness, resilience, and enthusiasm displayed by the class of 2020. Their spirit has encouraged me both personally and professionally. It is without a doubt that I will carry the lessons I have learned from this great class with me for the remainder of my career. It is truly an honor to be recognized by them!”
