Georgia Southern goes tobacco free

Written by  Monday, 28 July 2014 09:38

  Beginning this Friday tobacco will not be a part of campus life at Georgia Southern University.   Not just the campus itself, the ban includes other locations such as Paulson Stadium, the golf course and satellite locations. 


  President Brooks Keel identified banned products as cigars, cigars, cigarettes, pipes, hookahs, all forms of smokeless tobacco, clove cigarettes, and other smoking devices including vapor and electronic cigarettes.


  New students were told of the policy at all SOAR sessions, Kerry Greenstein, associated dean of students, said.  Current and returning students are being notified by email, information posted at Georgia Southern’s website, and other means.


  Signs will be posted at various locations and cigarette butt collection bins are being removed around the campus .


  Although the policy takes effect on all campuses around the state October 1st, Georgia Southern decided to make the move to a tobacco and smoke free campus beginning the first day of August which is this Friday.
