ALEXANDRIA, La. (AP) - The campus of Louisiana State University of Alexandria will be tobacco free by this summer.

State law mandates public post-secondary institutions become smoke-free by August.

LSUA is not only prohibiting the use of cigarettes and cigars on campus but all forms of smokeless tobacco- such as chewing and dipping tobacco - and electronic cigarettes.

The new policy takes effect Aug. 1.

LSU Eunice was the first school in the LSU system to go tobacco-free. LSUA is the second.

LSUA Interim Chancellor Paul Coreil says others are considering it.
