The university has now suspended Delta Tau Delta on an interim basis, pending an investigation by the office of student conduct. All Penn State fraternities are currently under a social ban after Timothy Piazza died in February from a fall during an alcohol hazing ritual.
In a statement, the Piazza family said: "This serious situation is an important test of the resolve of Penn State to enforce their commitment to new regulations and policies."
“I’ve only been here for a year,” said Penn State student Erica Jones. “But I feel like Greek life has changed significantly since past events.”
A university spokesperson says the school is also looking into who provided the 18-year-old with alcohol.
That student was hospitalized and is said to be recovering.
