Smoke-free Campus Survey

The Smoke Free Campus Task Force (don’t laugh, it’s paid for) has set up a survey to gauge student, staff and faculty thoughts on making campus smoke-free. From the survey:

The Smoke Free Campus Task Force has been appointed to assess the pros and cons of establishing the University of Oregon as a smoke free campus. To assist in this effort, the task force is asking all faculty, staff, and students to complete a short survey to give feedback about the current campus smoking policy and whether the UO should become a smoke free campus. Establishing campus as smoke free would prohibit smoking anywhere on campus, including all buildings and all campus grounds and properties.

I would advise all freedom-loving students, staff and faculty to fill out the survey … as many times as possible. Also, check out the OC’s response to these efforts from fall term.

    Oh god, Aaron Shakra.

    I remember David Jagernauth and Joe Bechard as being pretty classic, too. Didn’t Bechard have some anti-Thanksgiving piece that ended with him sobbing nude in his bath tub at the injustice of the world or something?

  2. Timothy says:

    This is not nearly as good as Aaron Shakra.

  3. Vincent says:

    This is riveting stuff.

    Well Dave that’s for you to decide . How many people in this area notice your weird Nike masterplanning sharkitects and critique their goals of pouring what remains of the Fairmount neighborhood in to a new urbanist waffle iron called “form based codes”? Once the segregated athlete Nike worship/storytelling center is opened we’ll all be able to lock out the ordinary students and Commentator skeptics and stare out over the new O shaped zebrafish pond while sipping kool aid and discussing ways to keep the Nike cults crumbling brand propped up for eternity . Also the tattoo artist that visited the Nike world campus should be flown in so that disciples awaiting their swoosh ankle tattoos can be taken care of at the center. May the Nike Urban learning neighborhood renaissance begin !

    Zach Vishanoff, is that you?

    It’s me, Dave. Phil and I are all coked up and lookin’ to paint the town red, so I’d watch out. We’re gonna drown some hookers in $100 bills and then plant a stadium full of nano-athletes on every square inch of this goddamn town. Just do it, baby!

  6. marginalize what you dont know says:

    Smoking is never allowed at the Nike world campus. Similiarly, as UO becomes more Nike worldly(and sustainable) and with Nike’s architect’s ultra modern masterplans for UO piling up smoking must be banned at uo to grow the Nike culture of health and big- mother knows best governance. There will be no smoking for the olympic trials . Just don’t or else!

  7. Carly says:

    This anti-smoking crap is awful. I’m all sorts of angry.

  8. Timbo says:

    I was filling this out, but when I got to the part about “how much time do you spend on campus” 0 was not an option, so I stopped.

  9. THUNDERLOVE says:

    I just recieved a call from Sam Dotterz. He won by four hundred votes

  10. Vincent says:

    A spring term Smoke-In would probably go off a lot better than the rainy fall-term one.

    In any case, making campus “smoke free” is impossible. It will never happen. There’s no effective way to police it, and simply getting rid of places to dispose of cigarette butts like they did last time only led to having cigarette butts strewn all over the ground.

    Then again, if we hire a bunch more DPS officers whose job it is to roam campus issuing citations for smoking, the University could conceivably raise enough money to put a massive metal dome over campus to block out cancer-causing radiation from the sun!
