Looking at privatization, and greek networking there definitely exists a correlation that could be used to drive my thesis. The way I look at it, college is becoming more expensive, making it harder for students to attend and enjoy life at college as greek life is expensive and is usually comprised of people from well off families. This is creating a division between those who are going to college to learn and can't afford too many outside expenses and those who attend for the party. Paying for the party is almost the perfect article to relate these topic as it explores the lives of well off students and mid to lower class students.
