Tobacco is a medically-proven health risk, and an increasing number of schools, colleges, universities, public facilities, private businesses, and work-places are becoming tobacco-free. Central Piedmont is a 100 percent tobacco-free college. Our tobacco-free campuses model healthy behaviors and offer individuals of all ages a healthier place to learn, work, and visit.
