PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Brown University officials say one of two students who reported memory loss after drinking punch at a fraternity party last month tested positive for a date-rape drug, while tests on the other student are pending.

The Providence Journal reports that the university announced the test results in a campus-wide email late Saturday.

The students said they became rapidly intoxicated and had memory loss after drinking punch at a fraternity party on Oct. 17. Brown has suspended the fraternity, Phi Kappa Psi. One of the two students also reported being sexually assaulted.

Margaret Klawunn, Brown vice president of campus life and student services, says in the email that the student tested positive for gamma hydroxybutyrate, or GHB, a date-rape drug also known as “street ecstasy.”
