OU Board Approves Tobacco Ban (Jan 25, 2012)
Nearly all tobacco use on the University of Oklahoma campus will be banned beginning early this summer. Yesterday afternoon, the OU Board of Regents unanimously approved President David Boren’s recommendation to create two smoking areas on the Norman campus, in the parking lots of Dale Hall and the Lloyd Noble Center.

According to the recommendation in the regents’ agenda, the ban also covers university housing and cars owned or leased by OU. The proposal covers students, faculty, staff and visitors and would begin July 1st.

Violators of the new policy will receive a warning for a first offense. The second time a person is caught using tobacco on campus will mean a 10 dollar fine. The fine increases to 50-dollars on the third offense. The tobacco ban also includes all events at OU’s football stadium.
