You’ll no longer find a pipe-smoking professor – or smokers of any sort - at Cal State University Fullerton.
Starting today, the Orange County campus is becoming the first in the California State University system to become totally smoke-free by banning cigarettes, cigars, pipes and even popular electronic cigarettes, considered by some to be a safer alternative to traditional smokes.
University officials say the no-smoking policy applies to every Cal State Fullerton location, including residence halls, parking structures, off-campus facilities -- even school vehicles.
The university has removed all ashtrays and put up new signs advising students, faculty, staff and visitors that they may no longer light up.
The ban also applies to the sale and distribution of any tobacco product on campus.
