The University of Virginia has reinstated campus Greek life, CNN reports. The groups were suspended Nov. 21 after Rolling Stone published a now-questioned account of sexual assault on campus.

Fraternities and sororities will have to abide by new rules created by UVA's Greek leadership councils. Pre-mixed drinks are barred from fraternity parties, and each such party must have at least three sober brothers.

"I believe the new safety measures recommended by the student leaders in the Greek community will help provide a safer environment for their members and guests," UVA President Teresa Sullivan said in a news release.
