Reflecting a change that has swept the nation in recent years, many students now heading to college will find their campuses to be smoke-free and even tobacco-free.
As of July 8, at least 1,182 college and university campuses have adopted smoke-free policies, according to Americans for Nonsmokers’ Rights. Of these, 798 campuses have a 100 percent tobacco-free policy. Since September 2012, more than 400 colleges and universities have gone smoke-free.
