"We've got a serious problem and we've got to deal with it". Thrasher also banned alcohol at all student organization events during the suspension.

"For this suspension to end, there will need to be a new normal for Greek Life at the university", Thrasher said in a statement.

Andrew Coffey, 20, of Pompano Beach, Fla., was trying to join the FSU's Pi Kappa Phi fraternity, the Tallahassee Democrat reports.
