ST. CLOUD — St. Cloud State University has taken another step toward going completely tobacco free.

Last month a task force recommended the campus go completely smoke free by August 1st, 2012.  Now the students have also voted in favor of that recommendation.  Of the just over 1,200 votes cast, 63% favor going tobacco free, while 37% oppose.

SCSU President Earl Potter will have the final say on the issue, but he hasn’t given a date yet on when he’ll make that decision.

With over 18,000 students, St. Cloud State University is Minnesota’s second largest university — behind only the University of Minnesota.  The campus sits on 100 acres of land.

St. Cloud’s other MnSCU school – The St. Cloud Technical and Community College – has already gone tobacco free.

Bemidji State just went smoke free on Tuesday of this week, joining 35 other Minnesota schools that ban smoking — including Winona State, Southwest Minnesota State, and the University of Minnesota-Duluth.
