FSU President Thrasher says the ban on Greek life will stay in place until there is a new culture in place for the organizations.

Andrew Coffey, a Florida State University student and Pi Kappa Phi fraternity pledge, died Friday after attending a house party. "But all of our student organizations - Greek organizations and the other recognized student organizations on campus - must step up. They will have to participate in the solution", Thrasher said.
Police arrived at around 10 a.m. and were unable to revive Coffey, pronouncing him dead at the scene, according toWPLG. He was from Pompano Beach.
All Pi Kappa Phi activity at FSU has been suspended in the wake of Coffey's death, and fraternity brothers have been directed to cooperate with a police investigation, the Democrat reports.
