FSU suspends all fraternities and sororities after student's death

University president John Thrasher announced the suspension on Monday, three days after the death of Andrew Coffey.

The university has more than 700 organizations outside the campus' Greek life. "There must be a new culture, and our students must be full participants in creating it", Thrasher said in a statement.

Florida State is at least the third university this year to suspend Greek Life, behind Pennsylvania State and Louisiana State. Louisiana State had a one-month suspension and continues to ban alcohol at Greek parties after the hazing death of 18-year old Maxwell Gruver in September.
