WEST LIBERTY (AP) — West Liberty University is
joining a national trend at the start of the new year: On Jan. 1, it
becomes a tobacco-free campus.
Signs informing students, staff and
visitors of the new policy were posted over the last few weeks of the
fall semester to inform people of the change.
Vice President of Human Resources James Stultz says the school has been offering smoking-cessation classes and information.
says reaction has been generally positive because many students and
employees are health-conscious and want to be in a healthy environment.
policy prohibits the use of tobacco products on all grounds and parking
areas, including traditional cigarettes, e-cigarettes, chewing tobacco,
pipes, cigars, hookah or waterpipes and snus.
It's effective both indoors and out.
