An undergraduate at San Diego State University died after allegedly attending a fraternity event last week that prompted the school to suspend all organizations affiliated to the Interfraternity Council family "said goodbye late Sunday night," said University President Adela de la Torre in a statement on Monday.
Of the 14 organizations on campus, six were already suspended and four were investigated before the incident last week, the university said. The indefinite suspension statement – which did not acknowledge the cause of Hernandez's death – prevents all organizations from engaging in activities.
"Each of us, including our students, must adhere to the highest standards that do not compromise the health and safety of anyone," said de la Torre.
Brotherhood?: Young men have died in brotherhoods every year for two decades, but brotherhood is changing slowly.
She added, "As a mother, nothing can replace the profound loss of a child and the devastating heartache that the family and its loved ones suffer.We all in the Aztec family send our prayers and are here to support the family . "
The university police examined why Hernandez needed medical attention after supposedly attending a fraternity event Wednesday evening. The involvement of the police began after an emergency call for help for Hernandez, who was in a dorm at that time.
19-year-old Hernandez came to the university with 34,000 students from Jacksonville, Florida, according to a GoFundMe page.
"Dylan was an open-minded, carefree and stupid person who had so much love to give to everyone he met," it says on the page. "He has never failed to make everyone in the room smile, and his laughter was contagious."
Campus therapists will support those affected by his death, said de la Torre.
The state of San Diego estimates that 3,600 of its students members of the university are 46 recognized sorority and fraternity chapters on campus.
"Deeply disturbing": Secret brotherhood fraternity and what else to pay attention to during the onslaught of college fraternity.
The suspended fraternity fraternity brothers are: Alpha Epsilon Pi, Delta Sigma Phi, Delta Upsilon, Kappa Alpha Order, Kappa Sigma, Phi Delta Theta, Phi Gamma Delta, Phi Kappa Psi Pi-Kappa-Alpha, Sigma-Alpha-Epsilon, Sigma-Chi, Sigma-Phi-Epsilon, Theta-Chi, and Zeta-Beta-Tau.
Other Greek campus organizations are not affected by the suspension, university officials said.
