BUCKHANNON, W.Va. (AP) — Signs and posters are being placed around the campus of West Virginia Wesleyan College notifying students arriving for the fall term that tobacco products are now allowed only in designated areas.

The change is a move toward the Buckhannon campus becoming tobacco-free in January.

For the fall semester, tobacco products will be allowed in four areas, but the school says the entire campus will have the products banned in January. That includes smoking tobacco, nicotine, vapor pens and smokeless tobacco.

Wesleyan said in a news release that smoking cessation classes will be offered.
