University of Michigan's Greek life on hold

A student relaxes in front of Burton Tower on the University of MI campus in Ann Arbor.

Brothers of several fraternities are also facing allegations of sexual misconduct, and over 30 hospital transportation trips were made during the weekend of October 7.

Fitzgerald said the university is actively investigating the claims of sexual misconduct and hazing, as well as previous "sexually suggestive" themed parties that may have violated university rules.

One of the unauthorized events held required attendees of a particular fraternity's party to wear handcuffs for the entire evening unless they managed to finish drinking a whole champagne bottle.

Just Monday, Florida State University suspended all activities for fraternities and sororities after a pledge died, and a fraternity member was arrested on drug charges in an unrelated incident.

A student-run council at the University of MI has suspended fraternity social events following allegations of sexual misconduct and hazing involving fraternity members.

According to the newspaper, some of the hazing reports include that people were put in "alleged near-death situations". "It has come to our attention that some members of the Interfraternity Council community have not been living up to these standards", Alec Mayhan, the IFC executive vice president, said in the statement to The Detroit Free Press.

The interfraternity council says the suspension will allow the university to assess the policies and practices and find a formal plan moving forward.
