TAMPA, Fla (News Channel 8)-If you're a smoker on the University of Tampa campus you better watch where you light up. A new smoking policy starts this school year.
"We want everyone to have a healthy safe place they can learn and study," Laura Manke, UT student and Public Health major, said.
Manke, along with other students, formed the group Breath-Easy UT. They spent months campaigning to get a chance. After educating students and staff, talking to administrators, and starting up a petition, the school is virtually going smoke free.
