Reported: Saturday, June 7, 2014 5:31 PM EDT
RICHMOND, Ky.


Eastern Kentucky University has gone tobacco free across the entire campus.

Jack Rutherford is co-chair of the campus tobacco-ban task force. He told the Richmond Register changes on campus include banners and sandwich boards reminding people not to use tobacco products.

The school also is removing or repurposing the outdoor boxes that previously served as smoking areas.

Members of a new ambassador program will remind people on campus about the tobacco ban, although they won't be expected to enforce the ban. And the campus sponsoring a competition for picking up discarded cigarette butts with a gym membership as the prize.

EKU President Michael Benson said Eastern is committed to helping its students, faculty and staff to quit smoking. The school offers smoking cessation classes and free nicotine replacements.
