Answers to frequently asked questions on recent Greek-life issues

The recent tragic death of Timothy Piazza has shaken and impacted all of us in the Penn State community. Our hearts go out to the student's family and friends.

Penn State has focused for more than a decade on issues of excessive alcohol consumption and hazing, but like many other universities and colleges across the country these remain a serious challenge. It should go without saying that hazing and underage drinking are illegal and not permitted by the University. Penn State has and will continue to educate its students about these issues and will hold them accountable whenever it learns of such wrongdoing.

Our commitment to change remains strong. We will not rest until we solve this problem.
