Coffey's death falls on the University's Parent's Weekend, an event where the campus tends to show off its community to students' parents.
Andrew Coffey, a 20-year-old structural building understudy, kicked the bucket Friday morning at a home about a mile from the college, Tallahassee police told the daily paper.
The Tallahassee police say no one has been arrested in the death of Pi Kappa Phi pledge Andrew Coffey at an off-campus house party Friday.
Coffey, of Pompano Beach, was turning into an individual from the society through a procedure known as promising.
Florida State University's Vice President for Student Affairs Amy Hecht said the university is working with the city police department.
"All chapter operations are now suspended, and the members of the chapter have been directed to cooperate fully with all investigative efforts".
The Tallahassee Democrat reports that officers were collecting alcoholic beverage bottles that were scattered on the home's porch as evidence.
"He was a truly pleasant child, constantly inviting to everyone", said George Edmunds.
Edmunds described Coffey as a high school athlete and junior ROTC member with an ever-present smile on his face. The two used to hang out with companions at the dock in Deerfield Beach when they were more youthful, he said.
"The people I know that are friends with him are really shocked, it's just crushing", Edmunds said.
Coffey was a pledge of the FSU Pi Kappa Phi chapter.
"Our thoughts and prayers are with the student's family and friends", Pi Kappa Phi CEO Mark E. Timmes said in a statement obtained by ABC News. "We appreciate the partnership and support from the Division of Student Affairs during this hard time".
