Final Paper

For my final paper, I would like to discuss the way in which Fraternity and Sorority networking puts certain students at an advantage over those with spectacular GPAs. I am choosing this topic because I am a part of Greek life and I have seen people who are average students receive internships and job over students with high grade point averages.

  1. Several students have written on the advantages of fraternities in the past:

    Certainly Armstrong and Hamilton will be useful to your project, and you should revisit them -- also to check their sources.

    A useful search term might be "social capital," which is a concept developed by Pierre Bourdieu:
