Smoking ban on campus begins July 1

The State Journal-Register incorrectly reported Saturday that LLCC’s smoking ban would begin June 1. A correction was issued, and this article correctly states that the LLCC Board of Trustees approved a change in policy to bring the college into compliance with the new Illinois Smoke-Free Campus Act that takes effect July 1.

Smoking and use of tobacco products will be prohibited on any college-owned or operated property, except when an individual is traveling through or parked on campus in a personal vehicle. All students, employees and visitors to any LLCC location will be required to comply with this policy, as of July 1.
