Tobacco on Campus

Washburn Review Staff

During the summer, the Board of Regents consulted with the student government, staff council and faculty senate on a new tobacco policy. This new policy restricts tobacco use of any kind, including vapor delivering systems, to designated smoking areas, instead of allowing students to smoke anywhere outside.

The policy will take effect on the September 1. Most outdoor ashtrays have become either a new smoking area, or have been removed completely.

Later this week, Washburn will be posting a complete map of these designated smoking areas at the convenience of others.

Please remember that repeated violation of this new policy can lead to action under the student conduct code or the employee discipline procedures.

If you have problems with tobacco, Washburn offers help in the Student Health Center.
