Florida State University bans Greek life after student death

Florida police are investigating the Tallahassee chapter of a fraternity after a pledge was found dead on Friday morning after a party, as reported by Fox News.

Coffey graduated from Pompano Beach High School in 2015.

The move comes after 20-year-old Pi Kappa Phi fraternity pledge Andrew Coffey died Friday off-campus following a party. He was given treatment but pronounced dead at the scene.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the student's family and friends", said Pi Kappa Phi CEO Mark E. Timmes in a statement to the Tallahassee Democrat.

University officials say, in the coming weeks, the Division of Student Affairs will create and implement new measures in collaboration with students and other stakeholder groups.

Fraternity and sorority chapters will not be able to hold new member events, council or chapter meetings, chapter organized tailgates, chapter events such as socials, philanthropy, retreats, intramurals, organized participation in Market Wednesday and organized participation in homecoming, the university said in the release.

Coffey's death came at the outset of Parents Weekend, a time when the university hosts thousands of families and showcases its campus.

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

The body was found Friday just after 10 a.m. Police did not confirm the death until 10 p.m. Friday night. The bottles collected were scattered on the porch of the home where the party took place. Police said there were indicators that alcohol may have been a factor, but authorities were waiting for the results of an autopsy before determining a cause of death.
