Florida State Bans All Fraternities, Sororities

Florida State Bans All Fraternities, Sororities”

Shortly before the start of Florida State University's Parents' Weekend, the school placed a ban on fraternities and sororities following the death of a student, USA Today reports. And the death of a Louisiana State University fraternity pledge in September resulted in the freezing of Greek life activities for a week.

FSU has suspended the fraternity as the investigation continues, according to Todd Shelton, a spokesman for Pi Kappa Phi.

Coffey flourished in academics, Potts said.

At 10:23 a.m. Friday, police responded to a call of an unresponsive person at 1010 Buena Vista Drive, which runs parallel to High Road.

University officials are also working with police, Florida State University Vice President Amy Hecht said.

Detectives have yet to announce an official cause of death, though alcohol has been implicated as authorities were spotted collecting bottles and cans of beer that littered the front yard of the home where he died, as reported by Tallahassee Democrat.

Thrasher said the duration of the suspension is up to the students.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the student's family and friends", said Pi Kappa Phi CEO Mark E. Timmes.

"He was a really nice kid, always very friendly to everybody", said George Edmunds.

ABC News reports that one of Coffey's high school friends described him as a "smiling, spirited young man". The two used to hang out with friends at the pier in Deerfield Beach when they were younger, he said. "We appreciate the partnership and support from the Division of Student Affairs during this hard time".
