Another fraternity suspended after concerns of excessive drinking

Another fraternity suspended after concerns of excessive drinking”

Penn State has suspended a fraternity after a student suspected of drinking there was found unconscious and hospitalized.

State College police said they found the student, an 18-year-old male, unconscious on a borough street September 28.

The university said, after the most recent investigation, there could be more restrictions to follow.

The suspension of Delta Tau Delta comes just months after the Penn State Board of Trustees passed a package of new rules created to change fraternity and sorority culture.

"I am resolved to turn the pain and anguish radiating through our entire community into decisive action and reform, concentrating on the safety and well-being of students at Penn State", the university's president, Eric Barron, said, according to a statement from the school. "We'll see where our investigation of this incident leads".

"University leaders have acknowledged that excessive underage drinking is a vexing problem on campuses nationwide and true change will not happen without the members, chapters, alumni boards, housing boards, council, and national organizations commitment and partnership in putting student safety first", Powers said. All Penn State fraternities are now under a social ban after Timothy Piazza died in February from a fall during an alcohol hazing ritual. Fraternity brothers at Beta Theta Pi, which has since been shut down, failed to get Piazza medical attention for almost 12 hours.
