I Am Charlotte Simmons Study Guide

I Am Charlotte Simmons

I Am Charlotte Simmons by Tom Wolfe

The book develops themes Wolfe introduces in the title essay from his book Hooking Up . The novel centers on Charlotte, a naive new student at Dupont University, a school boasting a top-ranked basketball program and an Ivy League academic reputation. Despite Dupont's elite status, in the minds of its students, sex, alcohol, and social status rule the day. The student culture is focused upon gaining material wealth, physical pleasure, and a well-placed social status; academics are only important insofar as they help achieve these goals.
