The New Campus Smoking Policy - Now in Effect

You may see some frustrated smokers on campus this semester. Starting January 1, smoking is only allowed in parking lots, and at least 50 feet from buildings. There are now signs stating the new policy at entrances and in parking lots around campus. The folks in Plant Operations have stationed cigarette butt receptacles at and past those fifty feet marks, as well.

So, the big the question is how will students and employees react? Will there be those who choose to ignore the new policy? If you see someone violating the policy, what should you do, if anything?

"Faculty and staff can approach someone and remind them of the new policy," said Campus Police Chief, William Rogan. "Or they can get a name of the person or call us. We're only issuing warnings right now. The only fines will be for littering, if people are throwing butts on the ground."

Here's a link to more information about the new policy. And if you're one of the many people using this change to try quitting, best of luck.
