Setting up Smoking Areas in CSU on Campus
As it is commonly known that smoking is harmful for people, especially young teenagers or university students, it is indeed not easy to stop people from smoking but what is more harmful is that people who do not want to smoke have to smoke the second hand cigarette.
On campus, it is indeed disturbing to see young men holding up cigarette on their hands and breathing out smoke from their mouth because each time they have blown out smoke from their mouth, they tend to pollute the air in which the other people next to have to smoke as well. Therefore, people have protested for more building setting up separate smoking sections. It is understandable because there are so many nonsmokers who never had the intention of smoking at all. However, if there is no separate smoking area for these people, they need to suffer from the danger as well as the hazards of breathing in the tobacco from other people as well. (35)
I would like to make a proposal that it is important to set up smoking area in the CSU campus because firstly, it is helpful in protecting the health of the students who do not smoke. What is more, it can prevent the students from throwing the cigarette butts all over the campus because if the smoking sections have been set up, the smokers are only allowed to smoke in a small and limited place. As a result, only a part of the campus will contain cigarette butts.
In fact, according to a news report in the Washing Post which was published in the year of 2006, the journalist had written down the important proposal in Report: Ban Smoking in Public Place, more than one hundred million nonsmokers have been innocently exposed to the hazards of tobacco. In the news report, it is also mentioned that only setting up smoking area does not help and what is the most effective method is to ban smoking totally. In fact, it is mentioned that once we have got the exposure to the secondhand smoke that is drifting in the air, we have become the victim of the danger of tobacco. (49)
In fact, more than ten states have carried out the law called the smoke free workplace laws, which mean that people no longer are allowed to smoke in the workplace, not even in the toilet or the corner because they have not set up any free smoking areas. However, for me, I think this news report had forgotten to mention the most important group of people: the students in schools. It is true that students are young people who are still experiencing growth in the important step of their lives. As a result, if they have taken into too much second hand smoke, they will easily get sick, much easier than grownups.( McClincy, 2012)
Therefore, setting up smoking areas in CSU campus is inevitable. However, in the piece of news Report: Ban Smoking in Public Place from the Washington post, the journalist had mentioned that setting up smoking sections is not enough in protecting the nonsmokers and the only good way to protect them would be to completely can smoking in the public places. In fact, I do not agree with this because clearly smoking is not like drug and many healthy people have taken this habit for years so it means that they cannot change the habit in a day or two. If smoking is completely banned in a place, people who get used to smoking when they are in need of taking a cigarette will find it very difficult to adapt. Also, the society will also experience a big change or the big turn that it has never expected. Therefore, it should be noted that banning smoking is not possible but setting up smoking areas is helpful. Firstly, setting up smoking area can make sure that those students who are used to smoking can continue their habits in a quiet place without disturbing other nonsmokers. Secondly, setting up smoking areas can improve the health of the non-smoking students because they no longer need to breathe in the bad air from the smokers students. ( McClincy, 2012)
I think that in higher education, it is not enough for the universities to only focus on improving the qualities of the teachers. At the same time, the professors and the leaders in the university need to pay attention to students’ mental development, their personalities, their goal as well as their health when it is necessary. In fact, according to the date from the Bureau of Labour Statistics, from January 1978 to 2012, the educational fees in university have been grown up. Before 1985, it almost had the same level of the consumer prices. However, after the year of 1990, the university tuition fees started growing too fast that it has exceeded the level of consumer prices too much. What is more serious is that in the year of 2012, the university tuition fee is three times of the consumer prices.(Williams, 2003) That is why most families say that they cannot afford to go to university and they prefer their children to start working after high school. In fact, it is not reasonable that the universities have charged so much money from the students every year but they have not contributed enough for the students’ rights.
One of the problems of higher education is that nowadays as more and more people are getting into the university, the quality of education had seriously decreased. It does not only mean that teachers are not as qualified as before, at the same time, the university tried to scrape every penny and put it in the pockets instead of taking it out to build up better facilities to the students. Therefore, this issue should be solved by making use of more funds to build up facilities which are more beneficial for the students’ health as well as benefits. ( McClincy, 2012)
The benefits of setting up smoking area are not only about protecting the health of students who do not have the habit of smoking. At the same time, it would end up getting the campus cleaner because as long as students are restricted to smoke in certain areas, the cigarette butts will not be thrown anywhere as on the street, the people on campus cannot smoke. At the same time, the universities could save a lot of money because fewer street cleaners will be needed on campus as the entire school gets cleaner with less trash. (Williams, 2003)
I think that in the university, as we have paid a lot of money to get into it, it is important for the university administrators to make sure that our tuition is worth it. Besides, setting up smoking area on our campus would not cost too much because it does not require the schools to build up a new building for that. On the contrary, firstly, a clear policy should be carried out and well promoted so that the students will understand that once the schools has made it clear and explicit that it is not allowed to smoke in the non-smoking areas but they still do that, they will be severely punished. Also, some signs need to be made so that the students and the professors are aware that where they are allowed to smoke and where they need to keep the air clean. What is more, in the stores on campus, I would suggest them to decrease the amount of cigarettes that they sell but they could sell more healthy products to compensate the lost from cigarettes. To conclude, the campus is a place where students discover their social values and develop themselves so the university needs to make sure that the policies are carried out in favor of the students’ mental and physical development. Therefore, it is worth it that the university is willing to spend certain amount of funds for the benefits of the students.
