A Penn State fraternity has been suspended on an interim basis after a student was hospitalized after allegedly being found unconscious as a result of drinking at a fraternity. According to Penn State spokeswoman Lisa Powers the 18 year old student was allegedly drinking at the Delta Tau Delta fraternity September 28th, when he was found unconscious on Calder Way in State College by police. The student is recovering, according to Powers. Powers said the Office of Student Conduct is investigating any connection the fraternity may have had in the incident. The office is also looking into if any individual students provided the underage student with alcohol. Powers said the conclusion of the investigation will determine any possible sanctions against Delta Tau Delta. "The potential involvement of Delta Tau Delta is very disturbing news, given all of the recent efforts of the education that have gone into emphasizing student safety." That education culminated in stricter regulations and guidelines that went into effect August 21st. Those regulations went into place following the death of Timothy Piazza, who died following drinking at the Beta Theta Pi fraternity house in February.
