"There must be a new culture, and our students must be full participants in creating it. We do not yet have details surrounding the passing today of student Andrew Coffey, but we will work closely with the Tallahassee Police Department as it investigates to determine the facts surrounding this case". Coffey's death also prompted the university to ban alcohol at campus events.

The fraternity has been suspended by its national organization pending the conclusion of the investigation. "We've got a serious problem".

Florida State University has announced a ban on all fraternities and sororities following the death of a student at a house party on Friday. FSU has more than 700 organizations outside the Greek community, according to the press release.

"All of our student organizations - Greek organizations and the other recognized student organizations on campus - must step up".

Three days ago, FSU student Andrew Coffey, a 20-year-old pledge at Pi Kappa Phi, died after being found unresponsive after attending a party. "We appreciate the partnership and support from the Division of Student Affairs during this hard time". They also cannot have any organized participation in homecoming activities, which are scheduled for next week.

Coffey graduated from Pompano Beach High School in 2015.

Greek Life at Florida State University has been indefinitely suspended after a freshman pledge died and another fraternity member faces cocaine charges.
