The Florida State University President is suspending all Greek life on campus after the death of a 20 year old Pi Kappa Phi fraternity member, Andrew Coffe, on Friday.

He was found unresponsive Friday morning at a house just a mile from the FSU campus.

"We've got a serious problem and we've got to deal with it". Investigators collected alcohol bottles at the scene but have not released an official cause of death for Coffey. "There must be a new culture, and our students must be full participants in creating it". It's the harshest penalty the university has put on its Greek life. It joins Penn State and Louisiana State, where fraternity members face hazing charges after alcohol-fueled deaths at those schools.

University President John Thrasher made the announcement on Monday.

As for Intel and AMD , the chip gives the two firms a potential leg up over chunkier laptops that pack NVIDIA discrete graphics. The new AMD-Intel product will enable sleeker, thinner devices for high-performance computing applications, such as gaming.

Police have already interviewed more than 50 people and have more interviews planned, he said.

According to FSU, a member of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity was arrested Monday in an unrelated case for the sale and trafficking of cocaine. "I hope that it's a short-lived response". But in the past year, in which the national disciplinary log recorded 60 misconduct allegations against chapters around the country, there were none involving the FSU chapter. They also cannot have any organized participation in homecoming activities, which are scheduled for next week.

Thrasher has also banned alcohol at all registered student organization events during the indefinite suspension.

Students in those chapters will be allowed to remain as residents in their fraternity or sorority house and will have meal service.
