ASU bans smoking on campus

http://www.abc15.com/dpp/news/region_southeast_valley/tempe/asu-students-protest-smokingtobacco-ban-that-would-affect-all-property-owned-by-the-university

I thought there was a no smoking ban on all educational facilities. Does Uof A have this rule? I ask because it seems most DU folks are in Tucson.

1. Wow.

I think the UMaine system banned it about a quarter century ago.

2. At least football games

will be easier to attend without having to put up with the smoke.

The students are pissed though saying it interferes with freedom of choice.

5. I agree with your basic sentiment, but GEEEZZZ... that was...

6. went to uofa 10 years ago

cannot believe it's been 10 whole years since I've graduated

Anyways, when I was there, I didn't smoke due to it's too hard for me with my limited fine motor. But all my friends did-no smoking in dorms when I was there and we were outside so what's the problem right? But my RAs always would yell at us we were smoking too close to the building..We laughed at how up tight some of these people were, we were outside-what more can you want?? That was ten yrs ago. So I am sure the campus is more anti-smoking now.

It was weird cause I started at a NJ state college, they were wayy less strict about stuff like smoking. You could smoke in any dorm when I started in 1997. In jersey anyone could walk anywhere in a dorm no questions asked. My first week at UofA I didn't get what do you mean I even need to escort a parent back to my room-weird. They said is for security, I never thought to feel scared at my 1st college. I mean our doors locked so if someone was knocking and wouldn't go away-just call security.(shrug) Never got the escort thing

also on campus drinking arizona school way more strict-this was like I said awhile ago so thinking both schools are stricter now..It was just interesting how two schools two different states were so different..

8. I go to the UofA

Hasn't done that yet.

I smoke outside on campus all the time.

I'm a non traditional student, BTW.

If they do, I'll probably spend less time on campus then I do now.
