"We've got a serious problem". During the interim suspension, fraternities and sororities are banned from from holding new member events, meetings, tailgates, socials, philanthropic events, retreats, intramural sports and organized participation in certain events, though members are allowed to remain as residents in their fraternity or sorority house.

Thrasher said the pause was necessary to "review and reflect on the loss of a young life", according to a press release. The FSU chapter of the fraternity was suspended by its national organization after the death, pending the conclusion of the investigation. "They must participate in that culture".

Although there are indicators that alcohol may have been a factor in Coffey's death, investigators are awaiting the results of an autopsy, Tallahassee police Chief Michael DeLeo said Monday.

Andrew Coffey, a pledge at Pi Kappa Phi, died after attending an off-campus house party Friday. "But all of our student organizations - Greek organizations and the other recognized student organizations on campus - must step up". "We appreciate the partnership and support from the Division of Student Affairs during this hard time". And they're part of the solution. Coffey was a civil engineering major from Pompano Beach. He was given treatment but pronounced dead at the scene. Pi Kappa Phi has faced disciplinary action numerous times over the last five years, the Sun-Sentinel reports, including for alcohol violations. The bottles collected were scattered on the porch of the home where the party took place.
