FSU Prez Announces Partial Lifting of Greek Ban


TALLAHASSEE (970 WFLA) -- The Greeks are back at Florida State... but they'll have to live by a brand new set of rules. 

Three months after suspending all "Greek" life on campus when a fraternity pledge died of alcohol poisoning, Florida State University President John Thrasher announces a partial lifting of the ban. 

Thrasher suspended fraternities and sororities after a pledge died of alcohol poisoning in November. Now he's decided they can resume recruiting and philanthropic activities immediately and may allow them to hold social events later in the semester if they follow the new policies. 

If they can't abide by the new rules, Thrasher says Greek organizations face the threat of being "extinguished". 

Nine students implicated in the death of FSU pledge Andrew Coffey (pictured) have already been indicted on hazing charges by a grand jury.
