      Faculty/Staff and Students,

       La Roche College prohibits the use of Electronic Cigarettes (or e-cigarettes) and similar devices in all campus non-smoking areas.  The use of such devices is restricted to the designated smoking areas on campus.

       This policy includes electronic cigarettes (or e-cigarettes), electronic vaping device, personal vaporizer (PV), or electronic nicotine delivery system (ENDS) is a battery-powered device which simulates tobacco smoking. Electronic Cigarettes generally use a heating element that vaporizes a liquid solution. Some solutions contain a mixture of nicotine and flavorings, while others release a flavored vapor without nicotine. Many are designed to simulate smoking implements, such as cigarettes or cigars, in their use and/or appearance, while others are considerably different in appearance.

       Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
