2 St. Louis-area colleges ban smoking completely

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Two St. Louis-area college systems are banning smoking, and not just inside their buildings.

St. Louis Community College and Harris-Stowe State University have banned smoking anywhere on campus, indoors and out. Both bans took effect earlier this month.

Harris-Stowe’s vice president for academic affairs, Dwayne Smith, says the smoking ban is for the health and well-being of the university community.

The colleges join three others in the St. Louis area that already had smoke-free campuses — Washington University, Fontbonne University and St. Louis Christian College.
