FSU student found dead after off-campus fraternity party

FSU student found dead after off-campus fraternity party

In the absence of an official cause of death, the university said Monday its indefinitely banning all Greek activities on campus. "Like most universities, we worry about alcohol and drug abuse and other risky behaviors, and we are doing all we can to educate our students", Thrasher said in a statement. Thrasher didn't say how long the suspensions will last.

"We are overwhelmed with sadness any time we learn of the death of one of our students, and the FSU family provides extensive outreach to their family and friends as they mourn the loss of a young life", Hecht said.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the student's family and friends", Pi Kappa Phi CEO Mark E. Timmes said in a statement obtained by ABC News.

It comes after Pi Kappa Phi pledge Andrew Coffey, 20, died after attending an off-campus house party.

"Like most universities, we worry about alcohol and drug abuse and other unsafe behaviors, and we are doing all we can to educate our students", Thrasher said.

"I just feel like for whatever reason, the message is not getting through", Thrasher said. The Democrat reports 22 percent of FSU undergraduates, nearly 7,600 students, belong to a Greek organization during this school year. "But our students and their organizations on campus must step up".

The press release said the university's Division of Student Affairs will create and implement new measures in collaboration with students and other stakeholder groups. They also cannot have any organized participation in homecoming activities, which are scheduled for next week.

Police responded to a call at 10:23 a.m. Friday and first responders were unable to revive him. Neighbors said an unusually loud party took place Thursday night. Check back for updates.
