Florida State University Suspends ALL Greek Life Following Death Of Fraternity Pledge
10 November 2017, 01:39 | Nina Mathis
Fall out for FSU Greek life continues
Four days after 20-year-old Andrew Coffey, a Pi Kappa Phi fraternity pledge was found unresponsive, Tallahassee Police released a highly redacted eight-page report.
Florida State University President John Thrasher announced today he is imposing an indefinite interim suspension on all fraternities and sororities at FSU effective immediately. "That's my pledge to our students, to their parents and, certainly, to this community". In an unrelated case on Monday, Garrett Marcy, 20 and a member of Phi Delta Theta, was charged with selling and trafficking in cocaine. Thrasher said Greek life will not participate in homecoming this year and that fraternity and sorority chapters will be prevented from holding new member events, council and chapter meetings, chapter organized tailgates, social and philanthropic events, retreats, and intramurals.
Mr. Thrasher said Greek life activities would resume after members of fraternities and sororities worked with the university's Division of Student Affairs to develop new measures and new expectations for student behavior. The university will allow students who live in fraternity and sorority houses to remain there.
The North-American Interfraternity Conference said in a statement that it was ready to help FSU seek a way forward "that enhances safety and accountability, while respecting the rights of students who model fraternal excellence".
"Unfortunately, there has been a rash of instances similar to this, so I can understand the reason for the response", Armstrong said. Tallahassee Police Chief Michael DeLeo said they are still investigating. "Most of the organizations getting in trouble are fraternities".

Most non-Greek students were glad some action was taken. FSU student Alex Aull said he was shocked when he heard about the ban.
"I didn't see another way of getting attention, their attention, without doing that. But, obviously, it was a bad incident that happened", Aull said. "But all of our student organizations - Greek organizations and the other recognized student organizations on campus - must step up". The school suspended 55 fraternities and sororities Monday following the suspected alcohol-related death of a pledge and the cocaine-related arrest of someone at another fraternity.
"It's just something we should have been looking out for I feel like".
Dorce said she hopes the suspension will be a change for the better for her fellow Seminoles.
