The new tobacco-free policy officially kicked off June 1st.
EKU's president, Michael Benson said this is the smart and right thing to do.
Nationwide, 1,343 colleges are 100% smoke-free.
Of these, 925 are 100% tobacco-free.
In Kentucky, EKU joins five out of eight universities that are completely tobacco-free.
Dakota Rousey, an EKU student said he will have to try and stop smoking.
"I guess I'll just try and stop, and if I can't, I guess I'll have to make sure I have a bit extra time in between classes and cut off campus and have a smoke break," said Rousey.
