Starting today, there will be no more smoking on public college campuses in Louisiana. That even includes outdoor areas.
State law is requiring all public colleges and universities to be smoke-free by today, and even private universities, like Tulane, are getting in on the act.
LSU Vice Chancellor for Student Life Kurt Keppler says they're not looking to levy fines or force people off campus -- they're trying to make a healthier campus environment.
"We're not caught up in trying to fine or sanction or punish people," said Keppler. "We're trying to get other people to get people to stop, so we'll be using signage, we'll be using people talking to other people."
