According to Time, Florida State University shut down all fraternities and sororities Monday after a student died in an alcohol-related incident and another student was arrested on cocaine charges. FSU joins Penn State and Louisiana State with their Greek life bans.
This pause is needed to review and reflect on the loss of a young life and to implement serious changes. For this suspension to end, there will need to be a new normal for Greek life on campus. They must participate in that culture.
Anyone who says that FSU's ban on Greek life is harsh or overreacting should be ashamed of themselves— Jessie Groom (@jgr00m) November 6, 2017
The kids devastated because FSU Greek life is cancelled are sad. Someone died & its not just the specific frat at fault, its the culture.— Emma Louise (@EmmalouMasters) November 6, 2017
FSU students think banning Greek life indefinitely is extreme. I think allowing a system that is killing young students to exist is extreme.— Seren Isabella (@serenisms) November 6, 2017
Shoutout President Thrasher for taking the death of a pledge at FSU seriously. Hopefully banning Greek life is a wake up call for the frats— Brianna (@BriannaGill_) November 6, 2017
Banning ALL of Greek life at FSU is an overreaction. Ban the fraternity the young man was in, not the entire system smh— Frankie (@francesleean_) November 6, 2017
Told my mom Greek life at FSU is suspended until further notice and her only remark was “can you still eat at the house?”— Miranda Church (@mirandachurchx) November 6, 2017
