Stephen F. Austin State University will join other Texas public schools this year in becoming a tobacco-free campus.
The ruling, which was approved this past week by SFA regents, includes all forms of tobacco, smokeless or not. Vapor products, such as e-cigarettes, will be banned as well. In addition to the tobacco ban, students will be able to attend meetings to help overcome tobacco addiction.
After a survey, it was found that 80 percent of the Nacogdoches university's student body was in favor of a tobacco-free campus.
The new regulation will take effect Aug. 1.
