Duke University Student Writes Thesis About Sexcapades with Athletes

by Dr. Boyce Watkins, Syracuse UniversityScholarship in Action 

Duke University student Karen Owen might have seemed pretty normal to most of us. She was a typical student for the most part, perhaps even extraordinary, given that she'd been admitted to Duke. But Owen did something that is probably making her mama blush. Owen put together what she called a "F**k list," consisting of a detailed account of the long list of athletes with whom she'd had sex. The "thesis," which was a 42-page powerpoint document, was called "An Education Beyond the Classroom: Excelling in the Realm of Horizontal Academics." She refers to the men in the document as her "subjects" and even thanks them in the acknowledgements section of the paper. In the document, Owen discusses the size of the men's "assets," and rates them on a variety of sexual attributes. There are 13 athletes featured that Owen says she "got busy" with.
