On Nov. 19, a group of pharmacy held “One Day Stand” an event where students and faculty pledged not to smoke for a day.

The group has been working closely with Susan Biskup from Passan Hall to develop the event. The results of a survey given earlier in the semester were presented at the event as well as information educating students and staff about the negative effects of smoking.

According to the One Day Stand web page, more than 1,577 campuses nationwide have a 100 percent smoke or tobacco free policy in place. The program encourages campuses to take a One Day Stand pledge a tobacco-free policy for one day.
