Following other colleges, Florida State University moved to indefinitely ban all fraternity and sorority activities until "a new normal for Greek Life at the university" is reached, according to a statement from John E. Thrasher, the university's president.

Flores said the University Police Department is assisting the San Marcos Police Department in the investigation and the fraternity will be reviewed. According to the University, EMS was called Monday to an off campus apartment where Phi Kappa Psi pledge Matthew Ellis, 20, was found unresponsive. He was pronounced dead less than an hour later.

The decision comes after the death of Andrew Coffey, a Pi Kappa Phi pledge who was found unresponsive after a party.

Investigators believe alcohol could have played a part in Ellis' death although a full toxicology report is pending.

The campus newspaper said Ellis' death happened the morning after his fraternity initiation.

Texas State University President Denise M. Trauth said in a statement Tuesday that she was "deeply saddened by the tragic death".

Trauth added that she was suspending all Greek fraternity and sorority activities while the university completes a review of the Greek system.

A Texas State sophomore and Phi Psi brother was found dead after a pledging incident.

Texas state isn't the only school cracking down on fraternities and sororities. "I think it's super risky and these things have happened before, so I think it's definitely the right and the smart move", said Texas State Senior Stephanie Cloyd.

Ellis was an active student at Texas State University and lived on campus.

It is imperative that our entire university community develop a culture that places the highest priority on the safety of its students, faculty, and staff.
