The ‘Great American Smokeout’ is tomorrow
Join the Department of College Recreation and Wellness for the Great American Smokeout
Resource Fair, Thursday, November 20, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the Nestor Hall West Lounge. Departments from across
campus and vendors from central Ohio will be on hand to offer students and employees
the resources to help them quit tobacco for good!
The American Cancer Society marks the Great American Smokeout on the third Thursday of November each year by encouraging smokers to use the date
to make a plan to quit, or to plan in advance and quit smoking that day. By quitting
— even for one day — smokers will be taking an important step towards a healthier
life – one that can lead to reducing cancer risk.
Columbus State will become a Tobacco Free College in 2015, so now is the time to make
your plan to quit!
