A large body of research has examined social networks of college students. This study aims to provide a systematic review and suggestion for further research. First, we clarify the concept, dimensions and measurements of college students’ social network (CSSN). Second, we summarize the antecedents of CSSN in terms of family and individual factors. Specifically, individual factors include demographic characteristics, implicit traits and explicit behaviors. Third, we classify the effects of CSSN into four aspects: attitudes and behaviors of college students during college time, employment and entrepreneurial processes after graduation. Future research should further explore on the maintenance strategy, dynamic evolution of CSSN, and etc.

Keywords college students      social network      employment quality      entrepreneurial intention      entrepreneurial performance
