Texas State University has suspended all fraternity and sorority activities after a student was found dead Monday following a fraternity initiation, university President Denise Trauth announced Tuesday afternoon.
Matthew Ellis, 20, a sophomore from Humble, was found unresponsive at his off-campus apartment about 11:30 a.m., the morning after he was initiated into the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity, the University Star, a student newspaper, reported.
Alcohol may have played a factor in Ellis' death, police said, according to the San Antonio Express-News.
Trauth said all fraternities and sororities were being suspended "until a thorough review of the Greek Affairs system is completed."

San Marcos police were still investigating the death Tuesday.
Ellis' friends called police about him Monday morning, and officers arrived at his apartment to find him not breathing. His cause of death has not yet been determined.
Last school year, four Texas State fraternities were suspended after a student from Burleson, Jordin Taylor, 20, died after being hit and dragged by a shuttle bus in October following an off-campus party.
Pi Kappa Alpha, Alpha Tau Omega, Kappa Alpha Order and Delta Tau Delta were punished for "alcohol-related policy violations" stemming from the party, school officials said.
