Tobacco Free

About Tobacco Free

Effective September 1, 2017, Executive Order 1108 required that all CSU campuses are smoke and tobacco-free. This order includes traditional cigarettes, electronic cigarettes, hookah, snuff, vapes, and chewing tobacco, and encompasses all of Sac State’s indoor and outdoor areas. Sac State encourages all members of the campus community, including students, faculty, staff, and visitors, to “Breathe Easy” and become part of our healthy hive!

If you would like more information about the Executive Order and what we are doing on campus to promote our smoke and tobacco-free status, please reach out to the Health and Wellness Promotion Department at 916-278-5422.
