MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -- West Virginia University has suspended social and pledging activities at its campus-affiliated fraternities and sororities after two problems on campus.

WVU Dean of Students Corey Farris says halting activities was done with students' well-being and safety in mind.

Morgantown Police Chief Ed Preston says officers were called to the Kappa Sigma fraternity house shortly before noon Wednesday.

They found someone performing cardio pulmonary resuscitation on 18-year-old Nolan Michael Burch of Buffalo, New York. Preston said Burch had no pulse and wasn't breathing. He was taken to Ruby Memorial Hospital, where he is in intensive care with an undisclosed medical condition.

On Nov. 6, 19 members of another fraternity were arrested on alcohol-related charges and the fraternity was suspended.

Police are investigating both.
