The Alpha Delta Chapter of the fraternity has been suspended until more information is known, the university said. State College Police and the University’s Office of Student Conduct are investigating.
“The interim suspension means the fraternity loses all privileges as a recognized student organization pending the outcome of the investigations,” Penn State said in a release.
The individual who died was visiting the area and was not a Penn State student, according to the university.
“The Chi Phi Fraternity prayers are with this young man’s family and friends during this incredibly difficult time,” said Michael Azarian, executive director of the Chi Phi Fraternity. “While the incident at an off-campus residence was not part of fraternity activities, we will monitor the investigation by the university and local officials.”
