As of Aug. 1, 2014, the University of Louisiana at Lafayette is tobacco-free.

Previously, smoking was permitted outdoors at least 25 feet away from building entrances. Our new tobacco-free policy goes further. Besides removing secondhand smoke from our campuses, we want to support those who are trying to quit tobacco altogether.

As the new policy goes into effect, the University is here to help students and employees who choose to quit become tobacco-free. Campus, state, and national cessation resources are available on the Breathe Easy website to support efforts across campus.

In true, Ragin' Cajun fashion, our campus community takes a friendly approach to address those in violation of the new tobacco-free policy. We call it the FIRE-fly approach.
F – friendly introduction
I – inform the person about the tobacco-free policy
R – request they not smoke on campuses
E – express thanks for complying
