ROCK HILL, N.C. -- Winthrop University is considering a campus-wide smoking ban.

Right now there are about 15 designated smoking areas on the Rock Hill campus, and each has ash trays.

The problem is students often smoke in non-designated areas while walking around campus.  People caught smoking in non-designated areas aren't cited by campus police.

Fines or an appearance before the student judicial court are two options being considered if people break the no-smoking ban.  It could be a year before a decision is made.
