CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - No more beer pong for fraternities and sororities at the College of Charleston, at least for now.

The South Carolina college announced this week it is suspending alcohol at all functions for Greek organizations after a series of incidents ranging from disruptive parties to students getting medical treatment for drinking too much.

Local news outlets report college President Glenn McConnell sent a letter saying the ban is in effect until a school review of the Greek system. Members of Greek organizations also will have to receive instruction on substance abuse and high-risk behaviors.

School spokesman Mike Robertson said there is no timetable for completing the review.

The ban affects about 3,200 members of Greek organizations. The college has about 10,000 undergraduates.
