Handel’s Water Music would be lovely.  There are also numerous Bach pieces that could work beautifully.

I second VSQ’s stuff.  They cover everything from Coldplay to the Beatles.  Very classical but more modern.  I would still throw in some Bach and Chopin too though.

I play in a sring quartet and our rep includes loads of stuff from quick-and-easy classical and Scott Joplin to jazz standards, Phanton of the Opera and The Beatles! 

Have a listen to Shostakovich’s Romance from The Gadfly, though that’s quite slow, or the Hornpipe from Handel’s Water Music (works surprisingly well with a quartet). 

If you want something a bit more poppy I played A-Ha’s Take on Me with a string quartet for a bride to walk out once. Failing that ‘I Want to Hold You Hand’ by the Beatles, anything by Michael Buble by the sounds of it, etc should all work quite well. 

I would shameless-plug my services as a creator of custom arrangements but I’m guessing you don’t need that if you’re a music grad.
