A healthy start: College goes tobacco-free starting Aug. 26

Tobacco-free signs are up around Seminole State's campuses, including this one near the Wayne M. Densch Partnership Center.

Talk about a breath of fresh air.

The designated smoking areas at Seminole State College of Florida are coming down this week as the college prepares for the start of classes on Monday with a new tobacco-free policy in place.

The College’s District Board of Trustees voted unanimously April 15 to ban tobacco use on all campuses beginning with the start of the 2013 Fall Term.

The ban takes effect Monday, Aug. 26, and is part of a wellness initiative that includes a proposed wellness center at the Sanford/Lake Mary Campus. The use of all tobacco products is banned on all Seminole State sites. This includes parking lots and tobacco use in personal vehicles while on college property.

Nationwide, at least 1,182 colleges and universities have instituted tobacco-free policies, according to Americans for Nonsmokers’ Rights.

The smoking areas were created in 2006, when the college banned smoking except for in designated areas.

For more information about the policy, please visit www.seminolestate.edu/tobaccofree.
