UF- One Year Smoke Free
It's a milestone in campus history. July 1 marked the one year anniversary of a tobacco-free University of Florida campus.
In spring of 2009, the question to go smoke free appeared as a referendum on the student government ballot. Sixty four percent of student voters were in support of kicking butts off campus.
No enforcement plan was put in place, but university officials claim the campaign is a success.
"Faculty staff and students, including our visitors, recognize the University of Florida wanted to be a sustainable campus, one that is respectful for our mind body and spirit," said Florida Bridgewater-Alford, Director UF Community Outreach.
Officials say its a step toward improving the heath of the UF community as well as campus visitors.
