ALEXANDRIA, La. (AP) — The campus of Louisiana State University of Alexandria will be tobacco free by this summer.

State law mandates public post-secondary institutions become smoke-free by August.

The Town Talk reports that LSUA is not only prohibiting the use of cigarettes and cigars on campus, but all forms of smokeless tobacco — such as chewing and dipping tobacco — and electronic cigarettes.

The new policy takes effect Aug. 1.

LSU Eunice was the first school in the LSU system to go tobacco-free. LSUA is the second.

LSUA Interim Chancellor Paul Coreil says others are considering it.
