As of Today Public Colleges, Universities Go Smoke-Free

class=”aligncenter size-full wp-image-39114″ src=”” alt=”LSUA-smokefree” width=”500″ height=”288″ />Today is the first day of no smoking at public colleges and universities. Teachers, students, staff and even visitors are being warned: light up, and you can be fined.

The Louisiana statehouse ordered all institutions of higher learning, and that includes the VO-Tech schools, to become tobacco-free by this date.

It even applies to workers who are on campus to make repairs or delivery services.
