News: Pasadena City College Goes Smoke-Free

Pasadena City College, Main Campus

Pasadena, Calif., - It's official!  On Wednesday, January 1, 2014, the use of cigarettes, cigars, pipes, and smokeless devices became officially prohibited on the campus of Pasadena City College.  A campus-wide survey showed 61 percent of students, faculty, and staff desired a smoke-free campus.  

Jo Buczko, co-chair for the campus health and safety committee coordinated the tobacco-free campus campaign.  "PCC students have been given notice for months that this day was coming and hopefully smokers will respect our right to have a campus that is now smoke-free", Buczko said.

The PCC Board of Trustees passed the smoke-free ordinance in August 2013 in an effort to create a healthier campus environment.
