College is an important time of social growth in a person's life. Often, connections formed in college will have a large impact later in life. As such, it is important to understand the social dynamics on a college campus. These dynamics can be viewed as Social Networks, an increasingly important branch of the social sciences. In this project we intend to apply mathematical analysis to a Social Network in order to study the implications they have on everyday life.
