For the health and wellness of the campus community, effective January 1, 2014, the FSU campus will be entirely tobacco-free.
As a top-tier research university, FSU sets the example for other organizations through its policies and practices, including those associated with the health and safety of students, faculty, staff and visitors.
Hundreds of colleges and universities across the country have adopted tobacco-free policies in keeping with a growing movement that spans both private and public sector areas to restrict exposure to toxic and human cancer-causing substances.
On Thursday, the 21st November 2014, FSU held their annual ‘Great American Smokeout’ at various locations, the TMH Cancer Center, Tallahassee Memorial Hospital, two locations at the City of Tallahassee. We encouraged people to try a three day ‘practice’ quit attempt and offered them a sample of NRT. Information on upcoming Quit Smoking NOW classes were given to each tobacco user that participated along with a sticker that said “I Quit for a Day”.
This year the event is set for Thursday November 20, 2015 at the same locations. If you are interested in volunteering to help with this event please contact Mary Dailey at 645-8584.
