Penn fraternity suspended in light of student’s fatal fall

    University of Pennsylvania’s chaper of the Phi Kappa Sigma fraternity has been suspended after a visiting student fell to his death in the building last month.

    The national headquarters suspended the fraternity’s activity pending the investigation into the death of John Carroll University student Matthew Crozier, the Daily Pennsylvanian reports.

    The frat was already prohibited from recruiting new members and was on administrative warning from the Office of Student Affairs/Fraternity and Sorority Life.

    Alcohol was found in the house the night of Crozier’s death, despite the fraternity’s self-promotion as a dry chapter.
