Coastal Carolina to go tobacco-free by fall 2014

Posted: Updated:

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) - Coastal Carolina University has a New Year's resolution for 2014: a tobacco-free campus by next fall.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reported (http://bit.ly/19xRcXW) the school will start working in January with students and staff to help them quit smoking.

The university's board of trustees approved the move earlier in December. Tobacco-free means no more cigarettes or smoke-related products, including cigars and chewing tobacco.

CCU associate vice president for communications Bill Plate says electronic cigarettes also will be prohibited.

He says CCU will create a team to launch a "Live Well at CCU" campaign that will include the tobacco-free initiative. The team will create a website listing the available resources students and staff can use to stop smoking.
