  • New Smoking Policy on Campus
    • The campus has changed its tobacco usage policies to allow smoking in designated areas only. New signs have been posted across campus to clarify where smoking is allowed. Issues with cigarette urns being moved to non-designated smoking areas have been reported, particularly around the Center for the Arts, so please help us to follow these new policies by educating yourself and helping the students, too. This map shows the designated smoking areas:
