Bowling Green State University passed the measure last June that bans all smoking on campus, with the exception of a handful of designated parking lots. The change went into effect Wednesday, the first day of 2014.
In addition to the designated parking lots, smoking is permitted within personal vehicles.
Lots where smoking is permitted are generally spread throughout campus. A notable shortcoming, however, exists near Doyt Perry Stadium, where Falcon fans gather to watch football games. The nearest designated area is in the Stroh Center parking lot, more than a short walk away from the stadium gates if you're stepping away to have a quick smoke.
Those who obverse problem behavior on campus are encouraged to gently remind anyone seen to be violating the policy.
Students, faculty and staff caught breaking the new policy will be subject to discipline under the code of conduct. Visitors found in violation may be asked to leave campus and could be subject to prosecution for trespassing, the university states in the policy.
