Cigarettes, cigars, oral tobacco, electronic cigarettes, and all other tobacco products will be prohibited on campus.
IPFW students and smoker Charles Kaduk says he doesn't foresee this rule having a big impact.
"It's just meaningless symbolism. It's not going to make one less cigarette get smoked. People will find a way to do it anyways. It's just to look good, not to achieve any good."
Nationwide, more than 1,100 colleges and universities have implemented tobacoo-free policies.
