Senior English Major Swims with Hemingway

In Sarah Lauro's Plant Hall office, on the north facing wall, is a library of books. It's a collection the assistant professor of English shares with inquiring students.

On more than one occasion, English major Noah Oakley '19 has asked Lauro about a topic - say, death and literature - and she directed him to one of the well-worn soft covers lining the shelf. And while unsure if he'd follow through with reading it, she'd see an Instagram post of Oakley reading the book in a Tampa coffee shop and smile to herself at his curiosity and thirst for knowledge.

"That's the thing about Noah. The classroom for him is the place knowledge starts. It's not the place that it ends," Lauro said. "He goes to every single extracurricular activity - if we're showing a movie he's there. If we're hosting a poet's reading, he's there. He just really takes advantage of that whole UT experience."
