SAN MARCOS, Texas - Fraternities and sororities are still suspended at Texas State University after the death of 20-year-old Matthew Ellis on Tuesday.
The university is using the time to reexamine Greek culture.
According to Texas State spokesman Matt Flores, the school's chapter of Phi Kappa Psi was already suspended by the national organization – not the university.
It means that the fraternity shouldn't have been holding social events in the first place.
The chapter was already under review by the Student Justice Panel, through the Dean of Students.
Flores calls the review a look into "allegations of misbehavior."
While that was as specific as he would get, it didn't take long to dig up details of a frat house murder at Texas State in 1999. A young man who had been thrown out of a party in the Tau Kappa Epsilon house on Academy Street in San Marcos beat Nick Armstrong to death.
Immediately after, the university vowed to ban alcohol from fraternity houses and mandated that social events be held off-campus.
It was off-campus in October 2016 that Jordin Taylor's body was found stuck under a party bus in rural Martindale after a fraternity social.
Fast forward to Tuesday, and it was off-campus that Texas State's Matt Ellis was found dead after a fraternity event.
Greek life members have been told not to speak with media after Ellis' death, but non-affiliated students had plenty to say about the drinking culture in fraternities and sororities.
"Everyone drinks and stuff, but it's dangerous at this age, especially to the point of alcohol poisoning, I don't get how you can let another kid get to that point where they're physically in danger of losing their life, " said Texas State student Allen Moreira.
"It's completely barbaric. How anyone can get enjoyment out of it is beyond me," said student Jada Webb.
Since 2000, there have been nearly 30 hazing- or alcohol-related deaths within the Greek system nationwide.
Flores said it's not the university's intent to dissolve Greek life entirely, but he did say all affiliated organizations are under a thorough review.
