From the Daily Princetonian:

Every spring, Princetonians return in droves for their 25th reunion, donning orange-and- black class jackets, to reunite with classmates, march in the P-Rade and sing “Old Nassau.” But the highest-profile member of the Class of 1985 — First Lady Michelle Obama — will not join her classmates.

Katie McCormick Lelyveld, Obama’s press secretary, said in an e-mail that the first lady’s scheduling office has sent a formal letter of regret to the University explaining that Obama will not be able to attend. Margaret Miller ’80, assistant vice president for alumni affairs, said she received the letter, which she referred to as a “private correspondence.”

Regina Lee, co-president of the Class of 1985, said she had not heard from the first lady’s office but was not surprised by the outcome.

“My general feeling was that while I and my fellow 85er classmates were hopeful that she might attend, we also knew that her schedule has many challenging demands and she might be unable to join us,” she explained in an e-mail. “We are of course disappointed that she will not attend our 25th reunion, as the 25th has traditionally been seen as ‘the’ special time for classmates to reconvene on campus, and our hope is that she nonetheless will connect and reconnect with old and new friends among her classmates and the University in the years to come.”
