The question of whether CSU should become a 100 percent smoke-free campus has become a topic of discussion for the Associated Students of CSU after the student Senate was presented with data showing that 53 percent of students and 63 percent of faculty and staff would prefer a smoke-free campus policy.

The date comes from an ASCSU survey conducted last spring that centered on policies regarding tobacco use on campus. Eight-hundred-and-six students and 1,986 faculty and staff participated in the survey.
