SDSU going smoke-free?

South Dakota State University is the only Board of Regents school to allow their students to smoke on campus, provided they do it responsibly. Currently, our rules dictate that those who wish to exercise their right to smoke must do so 25 feet from any air intake of any building on campus. Some wish to see this rule replaced with a more restrictive policy that would ban smoking on campus property all together. According to Rethink Tobacco, smoke-free policies have been shown to “minimize the exposure to secondhand smoke.” Thus, having a smoke-free campus at South Dakota State University would be beneficial in many ways.

Smoking in Rotunda D, the Student Union and anywhere else in 1976 was common-place.

Take the poll.
