to inhale: Smoking at Berkeley
Daily Californian - November 20, 2015
Breathe. So a seemingly infinite number of banners across the UC Berkeley campus
commands, in clean, modern lettering. A symbol of a deadly cigarette is struck
out against a backdrop of blue and gold the color scheme reminding the onlooker
that the banners effort ought to be a community one. The message is plain: There
is nowhere on this campus where you are permitted to smoke or consume any other
kind of tobacco product. Most students appear to respect the policy. Seeing
someone smoke a cigarette on campus during the day is extremely rare. Living
in the Unit 2 residence hall in 2014, even I a night owl with a smokers nose
for the smell of cigarettes probably spotted someone violating the prohibition
against smoking in the courtyard two or three times all year, and only at late
hours when no one was likely to pass through and glare at the offender.

The Observer - November 20, 2015
On Monday, the Faculty Senate is scheduled to consider a proposal to make the
university a tobacco-free campus. While much of the proposal is eminently reasonable,
the policy as drafted has a major problem, one that could actually undermine
the universitys stated goals of reducing smoking and improving the health of
the Case Western Reserve University community. If this policy is to be adopted,
it needs to be revised. The central component of the proposal is a prohibition
on smoking anywhere on campus. If adopted, we can finally say goodbye to the
clouds of smoke around designated smoking areas and the trail of cigarette butts
that line the paths to classroom buildings. Good riddance. Yet the policy goes
beyond eliminating smoking on campus to embrace all designated tobacco products,
including some that are not tobacco at all, such as electronic cigarettes (aka
e-cigs). Therein lies the problem.

If all your friends jumped off a bridge, would you? If a sundry of other schools

Faculty Senate will vote on whether or not to throw their support behind a policy
to ban cigarettes, chewing tobacco, electronic cigarettes and every other tobacco
based product on campus. The proposal is not intended as a means of helping
the student body, but rather motivated by a misplaced sense that lacking a tobacco-free
policy is somehow an embarrassment to our university. Here are just a few of
the reasons you should submit a statement to Secretary of the Faculty Senate
Rebecca Weiss and ask the senate to not put their weight behind this policy.

should be a choice
Eagle News - October 30, 2015
There are two primary arguments in favor of becoming a smoke-free and tobacco-free
campus. The first is secondhand: it is harmful to public safety and creates
a nuisance. The second: FGCU should not allow its students or employees to engage
in activities it deems unsafe for the individual. Because the administration
has domain over public spaces, it is an understandable goal to eliminate secondhand
smoke pollution in highly populated areas. But, what about using e-cigarettes
and chewing tobacco? Or, what about smoking in your car or outside your dorm?
These are all banned under the proposed policy, and it is a far reach to suggest
they cause public safety concerns.

for smokers to gather on campus. Its because Warren Wilson has cultivated a
tobacco-friendly culture, actively resisting the growing trend of tobacco-free
college campuses. As a result, the school has one of the highest rates of tobacco
use of any campus in the country.

For a smoking ban
Yale Daily News (blog) - April 3, 2015
The benefits of a smoking ban would extend far beyond our campus. American
higher education looks to the Ivy League to set the example, and as
of now, no Ivy League college has a campus-wide smoking ban. (Harvard
has a ban on its Medical, Dental and Public Health schools.) If Yale
were to mandate a campus-wide smoking ban, it would create a precedent
and political space for other universities to do the same. Our school
is one of a handful of universities that has the necessary profile and
social capital to launch the fight against tobacco.

Campus Times - March 15, 2015
Of course, Im talking about cigarette smoke. Cigarette smokers are polluting
the air outside ITS, right where students wait for buses and pass by
on their way to the library. Outside the door to ITS is a sign advertising
the University policy prohibiting smoking within 30 feet of a building.
Because this rule is unenforced, everyone who chooses not to put death
sticks in their mouths still has no choice but to breathe in the murderous
fumes they pass through. I have seen smokers light up literally right
next to signs telling them that they cant smoke within 30 feet of a
building. Such blatant disregard for University policy doesnt just undermine
the Universitys overall authority in enforcing its own rules; rather,
it endangers the health of anybody walking within 30 feet of a building.

new smoking scam: How tobacco is making a comeback among millennials
Salon - March 7, 2015
The quote above from this college freshman echoes prevalent ideas on
college campuses about smoking. Tobacco, like alcohol, is a substance
that everyone seemed to use, especially at parties. Few students on
the campuses where I worked saw themselves as real smokers. They were
party smokers, that is, people who mostly smoked socially. Thats why
so many students referred to their occasional smoking almost as an afterthought,
and talked about it as no big deal.

Daily Aztec - November 25, 2014
The ban on smoking has been rather vague and ineffective. The rush to

smokers are out of sight doesnt mean the behavior on campus has disappeared.
Smokers create just as much disturbance as skateboarders and are even
more harmful to the health of the surrounding people, but unfortunately
the ban is more of a suggestion than law. University police need to
turn to something more impactful, such as ticketing, to remove the lingering
number of smokers on campus.

of public access by law and by University policy. The document adds
a variety of examples of locations that qualify under this guideline,
including University-owned vehicles and spectator areas at outdoor University
events. It also notes that e-cigarettes are included under this policy.
While once uncommon, the number of 100% smoke-free campuses in the United
States has increased from 586 three years ago to 1,477 today.

Executive Cabinet smoke-free resolution veto statement
College Heights Herald - November 21, 2014
The Student Government Association Executive Cabinet provided the Herald
with its statement to veto Resolution 11-14-F, Resolution to Support
a Smoke Free Campus, on Thursday via email. Additionally, it is unreasonable
for the non-smoking majority to back the smoking minority into a corner.
Smoking may not be a constitutional right, but there are many things
that are not constitutional rights: eating, drinking, driving, etc.
We as the executive cabinet believe that all students at Western Kentucky
University should have the right to be able to pursue an unhindered
education. For smoking students, facing the dilemma of being late to
class because they had to run across campus to a smoking area or struggling
through withdrawal symptoms violates this right. ...

smoking and get it off campus
Macalester College The Mac Weekly - November 14, 2014
About as expected as snow on the ground during a Minnesota winter, so
too is the sight of a Macalester student smoking a cigarette somewhere
on campus. Upon my arrival here this was surprising to me, but within
a few months I had smoked my first few cigarettes with friends who regularly
smoked. I didnt feel bad about it at all; in fact, it was the cool thing
to do. It took less than a few months from my initial surprise at the
smoking frequency on campus for me to normalize the use of tobacco entirely.
When considering the use of tobacco, it is vital that we as a student
body support the transition toward a tobacco-free campus. This shift
in campus policy would, at best, reflect a tardy response to the 2012
National Tobacco-Free College Campus Initiative from the U.S. Department
of Health and Human Services.

University tobacco ban aims to create generation of non ...
The Post-Standard - syracuse.com - October 31, 2014
The movement to ban tobacco on college campuses, which Syracuse University
joined Monday, is not just about creating a smoke- free culture in public
workplaces. It is also about convincing young people to become lifetime
non-smokers, said Sarah Van Orman, the president of the American College
Health Association. The national initiative is more about creating a
healthy smoke-free culture than convincing students not to smoke, said
Cynthia Hallet, the executive director of Americans for Nonsmokers'
Rights. Which is why most of the coverage of SU's ban portrayed it as
a culture change more than anything else. But the less discussed purpose
of the initiative is to combat the modern targeting strategy of tobacco
companies, which began in 1998, said Hallet. That was the year that
the Master Settlement Agreement between 46 states and the nation's five
largest tobacco companies banned the companies from advertising to children
younger than 18. Hallet said this ban forced the companies to shift
their target audience to the next youngest demographic: 18-24 year-olds,
or people of college age. "They were looking for a new generation
of smokers and they need people to develop the habit while they are
young," said Hallet. "It's a for profit industry."

turn-off. Youve seen it; weve seen it Everyone has seen smokers dangling
right off the edge of Mt. Hoods property, puffing their cigarettes.
We dont want to hash people out for smoking, but they do make our institution
look unprofessional. Whats really shocking about this? Its not so much
the smokers, but the fact that this issue has been smoldering on the
back burner for many years. People have wanted to change the no smoking
policy for a while, and its time we at Mt. Hood took action. The Advocate
has written numerous editorials about this subject and yet we havent
provided a well-thought-out solution. The no smoking policy is black-and-white
for a reason. Black-and-white rules are the most efficient, but theres
a problem here: The gray area just wont go away. People smoke on campus
anyway, and they smoke all along the perimeter, choking up the sidewalks
and entrances to the school. People get away with smoking their e-cigs,
too, because they arent technically smoking tobacco.

Should Not be Smoke-Free
Washington College Elm - October 17, 2014
Imagine a campus with no coffee machines in the Dining Hall or no Java
George for your early morning caffine pickups before you get your sleep-deprived
self to an early morning class. One cup of coffee will give you the
energy and the rush to keep you up to finish the assignment is all that
is required. Even though you promised yourself to not leave an assignment
until the last moment, you find yourself sitting in the library, trying
to finish an assignment due at 11:59 pm, an hour away from now, and
you are just halfway into it. Now imagine that the Miller Library has
no caf?Well, being a smoker, I would feel a similar panic if this campus
became smoke-free. When I wake up, my stimulant is a cigarette and not
caffeine. When I am studying and need a break to bring myself up, it
is the nicotine rush that helps me.
A smoke-free Grounds
University of Virginia The Cavalier Daily - October 17, 2014
On October 2, the Managing Board published an editorial in which it
asserted that universities should not ban smoking on their campuses.
This piece was written in response to the smoking ban enacted at each
of the 31 public colleges and universities belonging to the University
System of Georgia. I disagree, not because I hope a ban would make smoking
a socially inconvenient behavior that would encourage smokers to quit.
Rather, secondhand smoking is a problem for nonsmokers that can be diminished
with a public smoking ban.

of banning smoking within 25 feet of campus buildings was enacted. Since
then, Macalester has taken steps to develop its tobacco education programs
and has made further inquiries within the campus community towards the
possibility of a tobacco ban, including circulating a survey last semester.

our opinion: Tobacco-free campuses: More colleges are banning tobacco
Deseret News October 5, 2014
The university system in the state of Georgia announced that its 31
separate campuses will join a growing number of colleges across the
country that have completely banned tobacco use, indoors and out. Of
the more than 1,800 schools that have adopted similar policies, only
two are in Utah. Its time for that to change. The lobby group Americans
for Nonsmokers Rights says risk factors for tobacco use peak at ages
18-25, and college attendance could be a turning point in choosing not
to use tobacco. Tobacco use is trending downward as longtime smokers
give up the habit. But data compiled by ANR shows that the number of
people who initiated smoking after age 18 increased from 600,000 in
2002 to 1 million in 2010.

matter of choice
University of Virginia The Cavalier Daily - October 2, 2014
Schools that opt to go smoke free may also risk alienating prospective
students who smoke and who think the ban would be too much of an inconvenience
for them. In attempting to preserve student health and productivity
universities can end up coming off as paternalistic. Providing information
and resources for smokers who want to quit would be a helpful and health-conscious
university policy, but students should ultimately be allowed to make
their own decisions.

by the horrible smell of smoke. Either way, Boston University has a
smoking problem. Crowds of smokers hang outside the George Sherman Union,
Warren Towers and many other buildings to light up. Sometimes students
dont even wait until they are outside. I once saw a kid start lighting
his cigarette before he was out the door of 100 Bay State Road. Im surprised
BU hasnt done more to restrict smokers on campus. Sure, they arent allowed
to smoke inside residences or buildings, but it seems that outside,
they can smoke wherever their hearts desire (although they arent doing
their hearts any favors)

vote for a smoke-free campus
Western Front - May 6, 2014
Sixty-six percent of students voted in favor of a smoke-free campus
in the Associated Students elections Friday, May 2, said Carly Roberts,
AS president. With the majority of students favoring a smoke-free campus,
AS now has a clear view of what students want and will use that information
to advocate policies that will help to establish Western as a smoke-free
campus in the future, she said. While the students have voted on this
decision, there have been no official decisions regarding a smoke-free
campus, she said. The current policy states that smoking, including
e-cigarettes, is not allowed inside of academic or residential buildings
and must be kept 25-feet away from building entrances, exits and vents,
said Sue Sullivan, director of environmental health and safety. Students
can smoke on walkways unless they are in an enclosed walkway, such as
the Fairhaven tunnel, she said.

Almost a year after the University Senate passed measures to limit smoking
on the campus, the state General Assembly is hearing a bill that would
make the University System of Maryland pay for smoking bans at its institutions.
A bill introduced by Del. John Wood (D-Charles and St. Marys) and backed
by tobacco lobbyist Bruce Bereano would reduce the amount of money going
to universities that adopt smoke-free policies. The deduction would
be proportionate to the amount of revenue the state receives from tobacco
taxes, which accounts for 2.8 percent of the states total revenue, according
to recent state projections. If the bill passes, university system funds
would take a similar hit percentagewise, which equates to about $33.8
million in fiscal year 2015. ...

Board of Trustees votes to ban tobacco use on campus
Mlive Kalamazoo - March 11, 2014
KALAMAZOO, MI The days of being able to light up at Kalamazoo Valley
Community College are coming to an end. The community college's Board
of Trustees voted unanimously on Tuesday evening to ban all tobacco
and e-cigarette use on campus at the end of this year. The ban would
include chewing tobacco, as well as cigarettes, pipes, cigars and other
smoking products. As of Jan. 1, 2015, people will only be able to smoke
in personal vehicles on campus. As of January, more than 1,180 U.S.
colleges and universities had gone smoke-free, with more than 800 of
those banning all on-campus tobacco use. Other changes to the smoking
policy will be coming sooner. As of April 1, e-cigarettes will be included
in the campus' current tobacco-use policy, which prohibits smoking within
50 feet of entrances at the Texas Township Campus, except for three
designated areas. There is also a smoking hut outside at the Texas Township
Campus. Smoking at the Arcadia Commons Campus is currently permitted
only outside the east entrance. That motion also passed unanimously.

The mission of NUVU is to persuade the Utah Valley University administration
to adopt a comprehensive tobacco-free policy. The mission is designed
to support the Utah Department of Health and the Utah County Health
Department in achieving the goal To create an anti-tobacco social media
campaign, targeting at-risk 18-24 year olds in Utah County. Because
our student body fits the goal of the target demographic there is no
better way to get involved than by affecting change at the UVU policy
level. NUVU stands for Non-Tobacco Utah Valley University. It was conceived
of by a group of community health majors for a social marketing class
but after support and interest from other students and faculty, the
idea has taken root outside of the classroom. In the state of Utah it
is estimated that 6.5% of young adults engage in smoking. While this
number is significantly lower than the national averages, it is nonetheless
a concern to the health of our student body the health of our community.

The University of Hawaii at M noas smoking ban, originally scheduled

tobacco ban expanded
easttennessean.com (subscription) - February 2, 2014
East Tennessee State Universitys no-smoking policy now prohibits the
use of any form of tobacco, any other substances that are lit and smoked,
and the use of electronic cigarettes or similar devices which simulate
smoking. Until fall 2013, the ETSU tobacco-free policy was plagued by
non-compliance and inadequate enforcement, said Hadii Mamudu, assistant
professor of public health and a member of ETSUs Tobacco Policy Research
Program Project Team. Therefore, to ensure smooth implementation of
the policy and to pre-empt problems in dealing with the use of other
tobacco products and [e-cigarettes] in the future, it became prudent
to expand the policy to include all smoked, smokeless and lit tobacco
products. Tobacco-free policies, like ETSUs, are not unusual for other
college and university campuses. Many schools are striving to establish
and enforce smoking bans...

E-cigarettes, marketed as a safe alternative, should be approached with
UConn Daily Campus - January 28, 2014
The market for electronic cigarettes has exploded in growth over the
course of the products very short existence, with some analysts such
as Wells Fargos Bonnie Herzog estimating the e-cigarette market will
grow from its current figure of $2 billion to $10 billion by 2017. The
appeal of e-cigarettes lies in their substitution of acrid smoke inhalation
with an aerosol-based nicotine delivery system. This has lead to the
assumption that e-cigarettes are an overwhelmingly more safe alternative
to traditional tobacco cigarettes. The potential of e-cigarettes has
attracted the attention of major tobacco companies like Phillip Morris,
which recently mended relations with its estranged parent company, Altria,
to invest $682.1 million in the construction of a manufacturing facility
that will produce 30 billion units upon completion by 2016. Unfortunately,
e-cigarettes may not be the miracle product they appear to be, as new
studies by the FDA and researchers at the University of California Riverside
have found trace amounts of carcinogens and other toxic materials within
e-cigarettes nicotine vapor.

concerns about smokers using the electronic cigarettes in classrooms

smoking ordinance, which defines smoking as the combustion of any cigar,
cigarette, pipe or similar article, using any form of tobacco or other
combustible substance in any form.
the light: Learning to believe in FSU's smoking ban
Tallahassee.com - January 27, 2014
Recently, over the course of a two-hour conversation, I learned more
about smoking than I had ever known before. Thats good, since ignorance
is never good, but bad, since I wrote a commentary about Florida State
Universitys smoking ban before this eye-opening discussion. One of which,
and it is extremely important, is the Preemption Clause of the Florida
Clean Indoor Air Act. That law, enacted in 1985, was designed to protect
Floridas citizens from the hazards of second-hand smoke. And while it
is a good law, its passage came at a price, which is the Preemption
Clause. The Preemption Cause contained in the law explicitly preempts
regulation of smoking to the state, meaning that no local towns, municipalities
or counties can pass anything stricter than the smoking laws passed
by the Florida State Legislature...

Kykernel.com (subscription) - January 22, 2014
What were you, your parents or your grandparents doing in 1964? Fifty
years ago, the U.S. Surgeon General issued the first Report on Smoking
and Health. While the U.S. has enjoyed a 58 percent decline in smoking
since 1965, too many Kentuckians still use tobacco. Kentuckians smoke
at higher rates than adults in any other state. An astounding 1.2 million
Kentucky adults smoke cigarettes, costing Kentuckians over $1.5 billion
to treat sick smokers. UKs decision to go completely tobacco-free more
than four years ago (November 2009) was a bold action toward ending
the tobacco epidemic.

clears the air about smoke-free policy
Highlander Newspaper - November 12, 2013
Beginning Jan. 2, 2014, UCR will implement the campus-wide policy of
maintaining a nicotine-free environment, which will apply to all students,
faculty members, staff, contractors and visitors. The new policy bans
the use of cigarettes, tobacco, electronic-cigarettes, unregulated nicotine
and other smokeless tobacco products such as chewing tobacco on campus.
Partial exemptions to the policy will be granted for research, educational
or clinical purposes and traditional ceremonies of cultural and religious
groups. It will be regulated upon all university-controlled property,
including land, buildings, parking lots and private residential space
owned by the UC.
UO should lift the smoking ban
Oregon Daily Emerald - November 11, 2013
If you have ever biked or walked past the edge of campus, you have undoubtedly
experienced the inevitable waft of smoke that permeates from smokers
on 13th Avenue. This delicious nicotine cloud is now a permanent resident
since the University of Oregons campus-wide smoking ban went into effect
last year. While some have cleverly discovered hidden places on campus
to smoke, most have been exiled to the far regions of campus which are
also the most common entrances to the university. The constant traffic
around these areas ironically creates an environment that the UO was
desperately trying to mitigate with the smoking ban. As utopian as the
idea might seem, I think that the Smoke and Tobacco Free initiative
should be lifted to allow students to smoke on campus.

other programs, according to Program Evaluator for the Center for Prevention
and Outreach Ahmed Belazi.
to Smoke? or Right to Fresh Air
SFA The Pine Log Online - October 2, 2013
The more controversial issue is the effects of second-hand smoke. Its
one thing for someone to destroy their own body, but its something else
when someones habits affect the health of those around them. The CDC
goes on to say that second-hand smoke causes an estimated 46,000 premature
deaths from heart disease each year in the U. S. among non-smokers.
Unfortunately, 20 feet from any entrance is not only difficult to gauge,
but also difficult to enforce. A petition is currently on the table
to ban smoking entirely from campus. The following is an excerpt from
the petitions page on change.org. The purpose of this petition is to
show support for a smoke-free campus at Stephen F. Austin State University.
Implementing a smoke-free policy will create a more positive campus
environment and promote the well-being of all students, faculty, alumni,
and visitors. As per American Nonsmokers Rights Foundations April 2013
report, 783 University & college campuses in the U.S. have already
adopted a smoke free or tobacco free campus policy. This is a high time
now that SFA also adopts a similar policy and sets an example demonstrating
its commitment toward community health.
Chargerbulletin - October 2, 2013
Exactly 20 feet from the Charger Plaza on Campbell Avenue, its hard
to miss the dozens of cigarette butts littering the sidewalk on your
way out of the parking lot. Walking up the stairs near Bethel Hall is
another familiar sight: several freshmen smoking cigarettes in between
classes, crowded around an ash receptacle. Smoking on college campuses
is nothing new; in fact, it has become an increasing epidemic amongst
college-aged students, some of whom begin as early as high school. According
to a study by the Harvard School of Public Health, one third (33 percent)
of college students currently use tobacco productschewing tobacco, cigars
and cigarettes to name a few. This is a jump from 1993 and 1997 where
only 22 and 28 percent of students smoked cigarettes, respectively.
Additionally, a study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
revealed about 88 percent of adult smokers who smoke daily said they
started smoking by the age 18. Due to this growing trend and the illnesses
associated with smoking, smoking bans are becoming common throughout
college campuses nationwide. A July 2013 report by the American Nonsmokers
Rights Foundation listed 1,178 schools that have adopted a 100 percent
smoke-free policy. The University of New Haven has yet to make the list.

Coast Report - October 2, 2013
Cigarettes are an increasingly controversial subject and it seems as
though whether you are a smoker or a non-smoker, you are stepping on
someones toes. BP 3550 deals with the Drug and Smoke-Free Environment
and Drug Prevention Program. This policy, in the past, has underlined
a completely alcohol and drug free campus. However, it is now revised
to also restrict the use of any tobacco product on campus, including
but not limited to: cigarettes, pipes, cigars or smokeless/chewing tobacco.
BP 3550 states a handful of reasons for this new potential ban, like
the dangers of second-hand smoke or maintaining an educational and healthy
environment. If this policy goes into effect, information about smoking-cessation
programs would be provided to students as needed.

as a smoker at APU
The Clause - October 1, 2013
Contrary to the presumption that with a non-smoking campus comes non-smoking
students, APU houses a smoking culture that is unseen to many. This
is largely due to the negative connotation that smoking has throughout
campus. Some students agree that APU should continue being a non-smoking
campus due to the health risks and discomfort level of other students.

irritation. Finally, I would be able to walk into McKeldin Library without

risk of secondhand smoke wafting in, and my eyes wouldnt itch constantly
as I walked to class. Clearly, this was only wishful thinking.

The Journal News | LoHud.com September 13, 2013
The widespread introduction of tobacco-free college campuses should
come as a shock to no one. This is a concept that is almost 15 years
in the making. Since 1999, colleges have been widely adopting smoke-free
practices on their campuses. The move to a smoke-free campus has especially
increased over the past three years. To date, 1,182 campuses are smoke-free
and approximately 418 of these are 100 percent tobacco-free. The transition
to a tobacco-free campus, while complicated, will result in improved
health for both smokers and nonsmokers. In addition, the reduction in
cigarette butt litter will result in a healthier environment. According
to Americans for Nonsmokers Rights, approximately 1.69 billion pounds
of cigarette butts wind up as trash every year. As you can imagine,
this poses a huge threat to aquatic animals, wildlife and pets.

A campus-wide universal smoking ban is under consideration in the University

by Jan. 1, 2015.
This hypocrisy, advertising a mandatory
policy with posters all around campus while at the same time virtually
ignoring it, is a far worse problem than the smoking itself. Tulane
would be better suited to repeal smoking restrictions altogether than
to continue the current all-talk-no-walk superficiality. Restrictions,
however, look good on paper regardless of whether they are enforced,
so maybe it doesnt matter to the administration.

Bans have never bent behaviors on any significant scale, and they

colleges (774 have done it already) has been ineffective. Although the
