(( Valerie Cole went to bed in her dorm room at four o-clock Saturday morning and never woke up.
She had been out with friends the night before, and according to police members of the fraternities reported seeing her at their parties.
Authorities allege Chi Phi and Pi Kappa Phi violated the Interfraternity Council's Risk Management guidelines concerning alcohol at both parties.
Besides the university suspensions, both fraternities' national offices have suspended their Radford charters.
To now, fraternities had policed themselves.
Greek Affairs Coordinator Jim Hicks says he's looking for ways to strengthen the policy.

David McAlpin of Troutville suffered fatal injuries when an "annealing oven" exploded two years ago.

The claim is against the maker of the oven- -not Walker Machine and Foundry where the incident occurred.
In court papers, the attorneys for McAlpin's widow maintain Leeds and Northrup- -among others- -failed to provide adequate instructions and warnings and, they say, the safety valve on the oven was defective.
