For some people, there’s nothing like taking a quick cigarette break in between a class or during a timeout from an intense study session in the library. Unfortunately, the next time that craving hits you, you’ll have to walk to Collegetown to do it.
This morning President David J. Skorton announced that the administration voted 59-41 in favor of banning of cigarettes on campus for the fall semester of 2012. Due to pressure from the administration and concerned parents, the vote was held Wednesday morning in a Statler meeting room to determine the status of tobacco use on campus.
Where this idea really came from, no one knows. The Skorton administration’s view on health has closed bars down, almost eliminated the Greek system, and now this. More news to come when it is available.
