The study … found that social satisfaction was high among members of high-status groups (i.e. wealthy, white, frat boys) compared to low-status groups (i.e. poor, LGBTQ non-Greek minorities) … low-status students were able to elevate their social satisfaction to the level of high-status students by binge drinking … most were mimicking the behavior of high-status group members in order to elevate their social status.
we can blame the frat boys for our drinking now also
