TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- After the death of fraternity pledge Andrew Coffey, Florida State University is creating new rules and regulations to hold the Greek community accountable.

One of the new requirements is chapter "scorecards" that will be posted online for all to see.

FSU told WCTV Wednesday that they are still putting the finishing touches on the cards, but they will include: chapter size, average GPA, average community service hours and any honors or awards.

They will also disclose any disciplinary action and violations.

Fraternities and sororities must publish and update the scorecards every semester.

The cards can help parents and incoming students learn about individual Greek organizations and keep tabs on how the chapters are doing.

They will also help the university better track problems and performance.

FSU President John Thrasher says he hopes that this will be the beginning of real change in the campus culture.

The scorecards were recommended by the Leon County grand jury that reviewed Andrew Coffey's death.
