MOSCOW, Idaho -- University of Idaho officials plan to survey each Greek residence for safety hazards following the second student fall in a two-week span from a third-floor fraternity house window.

Members of the Moscow Police Department, UI Dean of Students Bruce Pitman and Matthew Kurz, the director of the UI's fraternity and sorority affairs, met with fraternity and sorority leadership on Thursday to find a way to prevent additional falls.

Pitman and Kurz say balconies, sleeping porches, upper floors of residences, and fire escapes and windows will be especially scrutinized.

Both students were seriously injured in the falls that occurred since classes started on the Moscow campus in northern Idaho last month.
