UWT: Campus should go tobacco-free

Great news that the University of Washington Tacoma and the YMCA plan to build a fitness center on the UWT campus (TNT, 1-17). May the wise decision-makers (students and staff) at UWT utilize this opportunity to also embrace a tobacco-free UWT campus like Pacific Lutheran University.

Having a tobacco-free campus and a fitness center would demonstrate that UWT values student and staff health and, more importantly, walks the talk. Imagine many students graduating fit and free from addiction.
