President Nugent to Approve New Smoking Policy

By Sam Colt

President S. Georgia Nugent said she plans to approve the revised smoking policy Campus Senate passed on Feb. 9, allowing it to go into effect by Jan. 2013. The new policy will ban smoking in most non-residential areas. Nugent expressed support for the policy. “My own belief is that smoking is a really bad thing for you, and you shouldn’t do it, so it’s a question of how paternalistic you’re willing to be,” she said. “[The policy is] in the works and I’m planning to approve it.”
