Florida State University Suspends ALL Greek Life Following Death Of Fraternity Pledge

Florida State Suspends All Greek Life after Pledge Dies

John Thrasher, the FSU president, announced the indefinite ban on Monday in the wake of the alcohol-related death during a freshman pledge and cocaine charges for another fraternity member.

The Tallahassee police say no one has been arrested in the death of Pi Kappa Phi pledge Andrew Coffey at an off-campus house party Friday.

Tallahassee Police officials said there are indicators that alcohol may have been a factor but they're awaiting autopsy results to determine the cause of death.

In an unrelated event, another student - Garrett John Marcy - was arrested this week after an FSU officer discovered cocaine in his apartment at the Phi Delta Theta house.

Mr. Thrasher said he had reviewed actions taken by other universities before he made a decision to enact a suspension across the Greek system.

On Monday, members of the Greek community were told not to speak to the media, but but non-Greek students said they have mixed reactions on the sanctions. "To ensure the future of fraternity and sorority life, innovative practices will need to redefine our Greek community so that it positively contributes to the full well-being of students", she said.

They will be allowed to remain as residents in their fraternity or sorority house and will have meal service.

"I think people just get too insane when they're partying and all of that", Jillian Bustillo, a UF student, said. "We've got a serious problem".

Penn State suspended fraternities and sororities from holding social activities during the spring semester following the hazing death of 19-year-old Timothy Piazza in February.

"I thought it was kind of drastic because it was all of a sudden".

The university also banned the use of alcohol at Recognized Student Organization events at FSU.

"They must work with us and demonstrate they fully understand the serious obligation they have to exercise responsible conduct", he said. "Most of the organizations getting in trouble are fraternities. I think less drinking is a good response", said graduate student Jacob Kon.

"It will be more tame and not as festive as it usually is because there are a lot of floats during the parade and competitions during the week", said Rachel Humphries, who is a Florida State student. They also cannot have any organized participation in homecoming activities, which are scheduled for next week.
