Beginning on August 20, 2016, the first day of the Fall 2016 semester, Sacramento City College will become a smoke-, tobacco- and vape-fee college at all three campuses.
At that time, SCC will join all Los Rios Colleges and most other universities in the area by becoming smoke/tobacco/vape free. This decision follows, by about two years, the college’s effort to designate smoking areas around campus. It also closely follows surveys about one year ago that indicated going smoke/tobacco/vape free was favored by a majority of students and employees.
In addition, the state legislature recently passed, and Governor Brown signed, a bill, making it illegal to smoke on college campuses throughout the state.
Posters, fliers and banners have been posted around the college reminding all people to prepare for this change in college atmosphere.
