Smokeless campus, yet?

SCSU’s attempt to be a fully tobacco-free campus is continuously challenged by smokers who sneakily light up their cigarettes at some hidden corners between buildings. Some of the more popular spots for smokers are observed to be the backyard of 51 Building, at the back of Stewart Hall, and opposite the Miller Center at Barden Park (which is out of the SCSU administrative regulation since it is a city property, according to the students).

Worse still, they leave cigarette butts around, littering the ground with toxic chemicals that are accumulated in the cigarette filters. Maybe the admin should pay more attention to taking disciplinary actions against the policy violators if they really desire SCSU to become a smokeless campus.
