Quotes

“I have been on other campuses but this is a very special campus. The people here have big hearts and really care about any aspect of peoples’ lives. This is just one, but it shows on a day like this what people are willing to do. Picking up cigarette butts! That is disgusting in many ways but people don’t see it like that and that’s such a great thing,”

– Pearl Boelter, Director of Environmental Health & Safety

““As far our cigarette cleanup event, when we do collect cigarettes and they are placed on that table, you can notice the scent that erupts from the table. It is so strong, and when you experience that, you just have to think what this is doing to our campus environment, to our plants, to our students. We don’t think about it when it is dispersed but when the air picks it up we are all experiencing second hand smoking”

– Rena Mamoun, Fresh Air Advocate Lead
