I am Charlotte Simmons by Tom Wolfe
Charlotte Simmons is a naive and innocent young woman who wins a scholarship to elite Dupont University. College is a rude awakening for Charlotte. Instead of being a bastion of research and scholarship, athletic, fraternity, and alumni concerns trump everything else at Dupont University. It is awash in booze and sex, and the at the top of the pile of corruption is the basketball program, where cheating and fake courses run rampant. Charlotte's innocence and purity don't stand a chance against this background, and her story mirrors a society undone by fame and money. Tom Wolfe's rendering of campus life gone wild has received mixed reviews with the Seattle Times saying, "In the end, Charlotte still doesn't know the real meaning of her declaration, I am Charlotte Simmons - but the novel is a wild ride, one that will entertain, appall and illuminate readers along the way."
