This just in - college junior reads his first book ever!

I guess NCAA champion college basketball players like Kemba Walker don't have to read books in college, or ever.  But  the other 99% of students unlikley to land generoous NBA contracts should be reading more books, and writing.papers.  Sometimes I do wonder.
Before the Final Four, Crump suggested that Rhoden’s book would be the first that Walker had ever made it through cover-to-cover. After the win over Kentucky, Walker confirmed this. “That’s true,” he said. “You can write that. It is the first book I’ve ever read.
UConn Star Guard Reads First Book


  1. I have TA'ed and taught courses at UConn. It is pretty easy to get through UConn, in certain majors, without reading a book. And even in the most difficult majors, like engineering, I didn't see the students really reading books cover to cover. They did problem sets, endless problem sets.

  2. I guess there's plenty of English classes where reading a whole book is not required. UConn is probably not all that different from many schools.
