Colleges and Universities Ban Smoking

In less than one month, students at the University of Florida who smoke or use other tobacco products will have to find a way to go without them — at least while they’re on campus.

UF is implementing a tobacco-free policy on July 1, and it’s part of a nationwide trend . In 2005, there were just 18 smoke-free colleges — now there are 394, according to the American Nonsmokers’ Rights Foundation. That number is continuing to grow. Other colleges that will implement a tobacco-free policy this July include the University of Central Oklahoma , Northwestern Michigan College and Widener University in Pennsylvania . Starting this August, all public universities inArkansas will become smoke-free. Violators could be fined anywhere from $100 to $500.
