Florida State University has indefinitely suspended all Greek activities on campus following the death of a fraternity pledge.
FSU President John Thrasher announced the suspension on Monday, according to the universitys Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life.
For this suspension to end, there will need to be a new normal for Greek Life at the university, he said. There must be a new culture, and our students must be full participants in creating it.

Hard to have a new normal with all activities suspended. How does that work? Can they still live in the houses?
The story doesn’t say what it was - alcohol poisoning?
And there's not a riot at the president's office? Students aren't trashing the library, and seeking out conservatives to beat up?
The time is NOW. As a nation, we need to take back our children from the “educators” and the “entertainment” and “sports” businesses, and re-instill “deeply religious and moral” values in them. If we don’t, God help us.
An accident happened during Greek Week at my university back when. It depends on the university charter. I’m a frat brother and those idiots who handle pledges/plebes should know which ones wont last. Then again, I’m sure there are idiot taskmasters who come back the next year just to inflict the same sh*t (actually more) than the previous batch received.
The “new normal” is guaranteed to be all about social justice, rape culture and white privilege...
The action follows the death three days ago of Andrew Coffey, a pledge at Pi Kappa Phi, who was found unresponsive after attending a party, and the arrest today in an unrelated case of Garrett John Marcy, 20, who was charged with the sale and trafficking of cocaine. Marcy is a member of Phi Delta Theta fraternity.
They can live and eat there according to what I read.
Sorority girls can be mean but they rarely kill people.
They’re allowed to eat in the houses. That’s nice. I suppose they can have guests over for a visit now and then.
It doesn’t seem clear at this point that either the university or the fraternity had anything to do with his death.
No black people were harmed at Greek Life, so .....
I drank too much at many a fraternity party back in the day. There was strong peer pressure. But it was nobody’s fault but mine. It was a voluntary association I could have walked away from at any time.
The schools punish all the fraternities if anything goes wrong. It’s like the school prays that a dead student is in a fraternity so they can blame them.
You don’t need to be in a fraternity to drink yourself to death. Kids today don’t know how to drink. They pound liquor like we pounded 3.2 beer. I was visiting my son on campus and he had just gotten a friend out of jail where he spent the night. The kid blew a .06 at 2PM the day after he got arrested. No frats involved.
First, though, I would like to see how many students living in dorms and apartments at FSU have had similar incidents. I'd also like to know per capita how many such incidents occur per student-year, for each group.
When I was in college, people in dorms did everything from fall out of bunk beds drunk from three stories up...
to get electrocuted on various transformers....
to die of alcohol or drugs... to commit serious violent felonies, say, attempted murder.
These students were NOT fraternity or sorority people.
All these incidents got scant press.
The lifestyles, beliefs, extracurricular activities, politics, social status, etc., were never delved into.
I see this as just another means the left uses to break up any groups of people on campus who want to follow some kind of student traditions, who refuse to be lockstep liberal, and especially, who refuse to live in the government dorms, where the indoctrination is 7/24/365.
People are welcome to flame away.
We had a big party one semester. A kid left the party, went back to the dorm and jumped out of a window. Killed him. They tried to blame us but one of our members was the first African American SGA President in the school’s history so it went nowhere.
