Research demonstrates impact of fraternity membership on post-graduate income

CNBC published an article called, “Here’s how much more money you could make just from joining a frat” in which they summarized a study from researchers at Union College who found that “going Greek raises your income by 36% down the line. The academic cost, meanwhile, is a small one: a 0.25 point drop in GPA on the traditional 4-point-scale. In other words, you might graduate with a 2.75 GPA while your classmate who didn’t pledge ends up with a 3.00. But if he makes $75,000 a year, you could expect to make $102,000.”
