Will USF students say “sayanora” to the Smoking Garden? Your chance to vote on the proposed tobacco ban comes this April 14 on the ASUSF Spring 2014 Elections ballot.

ASUSF Senate Passes Tobacco Ban Referendum, Students Can Cast Their Votes in April

ASUSF Senate members passed Resolution 13-14-04 on the campus-wide banning of tobacco, last Tuesday, with a vote of 16-3, according to Madeline Meininger, Vice President of Business Administration for ASUSF Senate.

Senate’s approval of the resolution does not mean that smoking is now banned on USF’s campus, but that the proposition for a total, campus-wide tobacco ban will now be included in this year’s ASUSF Spring Elections.

Students will be able to vote on the tobacco ban, meant to transition USF into a 100% tobacco free campus, this April 14.

“As someone who hates cigarette smoke, I fully support people smoking in designated areas,” said Benjamin Miller, senior finance major.

If students vote to impose a tobacco ban on campus, however, there will be no designated smoking areas.

“Be tougher on people who smoke in front of building and in non-designated places,” said Miller, “but really, let people smoke in designated areas.”

John Zamora, who graduated USF in 2010 with a masters in Counseling Psychology, thinks a complete tobacco ban on campus might not be as effective as it sounds. “Healthwise, yes, a complete ban might be better,” he said, “but logistics and implementation would be very difficult…because of our open campus. At least, if sections were assigned, it won’t be as bad.”
