More East Texas Colleges Ban Smoking

When I went to college at the University of Nebraska, I can remember walking out of my journalism building into a puff of smoke. Smokers would congregate outside after class to have a quick drag before the next class. That may be a thing of the past.

More and more schools now are banning smoking on campus, and one local college has already done it.

UT Tyler bans smoking in all of its buildings. The UT system in Austin put in place a campus-wide smoking ban earlier this year.

Angelina College in Lufkin announced yesterday they’re banning smoking on campus this fall. That includes the entire campus and all off-campus centers. All will be 100 percent tobacco-free. The only place a student can smoke there is in his or her own car.

The recent smoking bans put these Texas schools in a group with schools like Wisconsin, Illinois, and just this week – West Virginia.

Smokers don’t have many places to light up anymore. Do you think the bans will lead to more smokers quitting, or will they just smoke in new places?
