It’s smoke-free at UT.

Beginning on Aug. 1, 2016, The University of Tampa will join the growing list of U.S. colleges and universities to ban all smoking and tobacco use on campus.

The policy, which was approved by the UT administration, bans smoking and use of tobacco of all types, including electronic cigarettes, chew tobacco, hookah, cigar and cigarette smoking. It includes all UT students, employees — including contractors — and visitors, and covers the entire 105-acre UT campus, including all academic and residential buildings, athletic facilities and fields, parking garages, open spaces and offices.

“This immediate awareness of responsibility ignited a flame within me instantly,” Chehab ’16 wrote on her application for an upcoming film workshop. “It is a very rare feeling in life to feel ignited, to feel as though the entire world around you has just appeared and with every flame within you, you plan to face it.”
