Smoking on Campus & the 25 Foot Rule

At Sarah Lawrence College smoking is permitted. But there is a catch. SLC has a 25 foot rule.

Smoking is prohibited in the following areas:

  • both terraces/patios of the Siegel Center, including the stone wall on the front terrace
  • inside any College building, including residence halls
  • within 25 feet of any building entrance or restricted pathway

Over the years there has been discussion on how to address the issue because many smokers ignore or were unaware of the policy. Recently I decided to use Google Maps and, roughly, overlay the areas that fall within the stated policy. What I found was no surprise to me. — There are few spaces to smoke on campus if someone adheres to the policy.
