Bro-speak term for partying. "Networking" gives fratboys an easy out to help overcome the massive cognitive dissonance associated with their lifestyles should it be brought into question. Namely, the idea that they will one day get a good-paying, stable job despite the unfortunate reality of their complete lack of employable skills.
TKE: Hey man frats provide valuable networking opportunities. My bro's dad has a dealership and he's going to give me a job once I graduate with my bachelors in marketing and I'm going to make fat ass cash and retire when I'm 40 brah.

Human: What did you say? Sorry, I was kind of busy learning an actual skill that will allow me to avoid a career of glad-handing and brown-nosing to cover up my obvious ineptitude.
