As of October 1st, 2014, Georgia Highlands College will be a tobacco-free campus

Why go tobacco-free?

The purpose of the policy is to create a health-supporting community for everyone, tobacco-users and non-users alike. The new policy also supports the right of all people on university system campuses to breathe smoke-free air. The simple reason for our policy is respect for each other and the environment. We hope that smokers who choose to continue smoking will respect our smoke-free environment out of concern for their fellow campus community members.

What are considered "Tobacco Products"?
