UF Alumna Casey Calvert Thrives In Porn Using UF Professor’s Name

It appears that Duke isn’t the only school making headlines for having a student in the adult film industry. An alumna of the University of Florida has also turned to a career in porn.

The actress’s stage name is Casey Calvert, and her moniker comes with an interesting backstory. While attending the university, Casey took UF professor Clay Calvert’s mass media course. The class left such a strong impression on Casey that, when selecting her professional handle, she paid tribute to the respected law instructor by using his last name.

“It felt right because really if I hadn’t taken his class, I wouldn’t be where I am right now,” Casey stated. “I’m happier than I’ve ever been.”

According to Sean Stewart-Muniz of The Independent Florida Alligator, it was in Calvert’s class that Casey learned just how lucrative the porn industry is.

Her career started with a nude bondage photo shoot while a senior at UF, and has blossomed into a six-figure income as one of the up-and-coming talents in the industry.

And she isn’t the only person with a UF connection currently in the porn industry. Casey knows of other alumni in her same field, along with some current students also dabbling in the industry.
