Abstract

This paper investigates the process of students’ network formation in National Research University–Higher School of Economics. Using pairwise regression, estimated on a network of second-year students from two faculties, we find that geographical closeness along with the homophily effects of gender, grade point average, smoking, and leisure preferences have a strong impact on the probability of being friends.
