The Smoke-Free Future is Now


On campus for the summer, Madeleine Thompson ’15 snapped this photo proving that the College’s controversial smoke-free policy has, in fact, come to pass. Because it is within 15 feet of a building, the patio area in front of Farr Hall is now a no smoking zone, sporting this stylish purple placard.

Smoking will still be allowed in the area between Olin Library and the Gund Gallery, on the patio behind Horvitz Hall, on the patio outside Gund Commons, and around all residential buildings — but no closer than 15 feet to any building.
