MSU announces smoking ban

Officials at Morehead State University announced early Thursday that the campus will go tobacco free in July of 2011.

It will ban smoking and all tobacco products on campus.

Right now, smoking isn't allowed only inside campus buildings.

"The University has an opportunity to dramatically impact the health and welfare of the members of our community and guests by making a change in the current campus tobacco practices,” said MSU President Dr. Wayne D. Andrews in a statement.

The recommendation was made by a committee made up of students, faculty and staff.

The announcement coincides with the Great American Smokeout, sponsored by the American Cancer Society.

The University of Kentucky's campus went smoke free one year ago Thursday.
