He also put a ban in place on alcohol at Recognized Student Organization events that will last as lon gas the fraternity and sorority suspension.

Thrasher said members of sororities and fraternities will be allowed to remain in chapter houses during the suspension, which won't end until determined by the student community, according to the statement. After the February hazing death of 19-year old Timothy Piazza, Penn State suspended fraternities and sororities from holding social activities during the spring semester. "There must be a new culture, and our students must be full participants in creating it".

"Like most universities, we worry about alcohol and drug abuse and other risky behaviors, and we are doing all we can to educate our students", Thrasher said. And they're part of the solution.

Andrew Coffey, 20, is alleged to have died at the party, which occurred off of the Florida State University campus. Twenty-two percent of all FSU undergraduates belong to a Greek organization.

FSU student, 20-year-old Andrew Coffey of Pompano Beach was found unresponsive at about 10:25 a.m. Friday, the morning after a house party about a mile from campus. "We appreciate the partnership and support from the Division of Student Affairs during this hard time".

Police collected beer bottles from the porch as evidence, the Tallahassee Democrat reported.

Coffey was pronounced dead at the scene, and an investigation into his death is ongoing, police said.
