Harrisburg Area Community College is the latest school to go tobacco-free beginning Monday.

All five campuses throughout Central Pennsylvania will ban the use of all tobacco products, including cigarettes, cigars, chewing tobacco and vaporizers.

No one will be able to light up, chew or inhale in the classrooms and offices, campus grounds or parking lots, according to a news release posted on HACC’s website.

Administrators at the college say they hope the new policy  will create a healthier, safer and more productive work and learning environment.

People trying to quit will be allowed to use nicotine patches, lozenges and gum. The college will also offer free tobacco cessation classes in the fall and spring semesters.
