TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - The president of Florida State University says he has no timetable for reinstating Greek activities on campus, which were suspended in November after the death of a fraternity pledge.
In an interview with The Associated Press, John Thrasher says he will evaluate the suggestions of many groups and hopes to have more definitive ideas on how to proceed by the end of January.
Thrasher suspended all Greek activities on campus Nov. 6, three days after the death of Andrew Coffey, a 20-year old junior who was a pledge at Pi Kappa Phi.
Since Florida State's announcement, Texas State, Ohio State and Michigan also have issued suspensions of Greek activities either due to a student's death or incidents involving fraternities and sororities. Florida State's fall semester concludes this week.
