ST. CLOUD - St. Cloud State University goes completely tobacco free tomorrow (Wednesday).

It's a policy that been two years in the making, so it shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone.  University leaders say the tobacco ban will provide a cleaner healthier campus.

The policy prohibits all forms of tobacco use.  However, tobacco will still be allowed in traditional Native American ceremonies, scientific studies, theatrical productions, and in private vehicles.

Last year SCSU created 20 tobacco use areas around campus, in the first phase of the two-phase process.

SCSU is the sixth university in the MnSCU system to implement a tobacco-free policy.
