SJSU students advocate for tobacco free CSUs

San José State University students Alexandra Rossi and Pete Cadano attended a recent California State University board of trustees’ meeting in Long Beach to advocate for smoke-free campuses. The two students are active in COUGH-SJSU, an advocacy group that works to educate students about the effects of tobacco products along with e-cigarettes.

The two students are enrolled in the College of Applied Sciences and Arts Health Science and Recreation department. Through COUGH-SJSU, they often host informational booths on campus to educate students, faculty and staff about the effects of tobacco use as well as to advocate for a tobacco-free campus.

Rossi was mentioned in an article about the board meeting published on March 26 in the Daily Titan, CSU Fullerton’s campus newspaper. According to the article three CSU campuses have already implemented a smoking ban, including CSU Fullerton, CSU Sacramento and San Diego State University.
