FREEPORT (WREX) -
In less than three week, public college campuses must go smoke free in Illinois.
Lawmakers passed the Smoke Free Campus Act last year.
It bans smoking both indoors and outdoors on state-supported college campuses starting July 1.
Highland Community College in Freeport has prepared students and staff for the change. They were offered smoking cessation classes.
The college's trustees also passed its own policy that not only bans smoking, but e-cigarettes and chewing tobacco on campus.
