If you are a smoker and a student at Schenectady County Community College, you might want to think about the “patch” to help get your through your day come the fall semester. The campus has enacted a new rule that bans smoking on any college property.

The Board of Trustees decided to join the “Tobacco Free Coalition” in May and will make the entire campus Smoke Free starting the Fall semester this year.

President of Student Affairs Martha Asselin thinks of the band in a positive light talking with News10:

It’s saying the college is promoting a healthy environment that is tobacco free

The ban is on any tobacco product including cigarettes and chewing tobacco. The Smoke Free Zone includes all campus properties – Yes, even parking lots on campus.

As with any enactment of a new rule banning smoking, there are those for and against it. Some are praising the school while others are claiming it infringes on their rights. There are students who wish there is some middle ground meeting to allow smoking in certain areas but at this time, the entire campus will be Smoke Free.
