OSU Considers Tobacco-Free Campus

STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) _ Officials at Oklahoma State are considering proposals to make the campus tobacco-free and requiring a course aimed at teaching healthy lifestyles.

OSU already prohibits smoking within 25 feet of campus buildings but the plan calls for banning all tobacco from university property.

But university President David Schmidly calls the issue difficult because tobacco use is legal and he says some people would see a ban as an attack on personal freedoms.

Some options include a proposal to designate smoking areas in less-used areas of the campus.
