The Great American Smoke Out, which urged smokers Thursday to kick the habit, coincides with the recently released expansion of Syracuse University’s “Smoke-Free” Policy. Starting next July, use of tobacco products and vaporizers will be prohibited outdoors on campus. Temporary exceptions will be made, however, for the Carrier Dome, Sheraton Hotel, Syracuse Stage, and Drumlins.

Syracuse University students held a vigil on Friday afternoon to advocate for more mental and sexual health services on campus.  The group, known as THE General Body, said that students are significantly affected by a lack of services and the closing of the Advocacy Center. The demonstration included speakers, singers, poets and testimonies. The students said that the number of medical professionals directly affects their ability to thrive on campus.

UPDATE:  Students plan protest at Chancellor's residence; 2:00 p.m. rally on campus; 2:45 vigil with speakers, singers, poets and testimonies.

A group of Syracuse University student organizations says progress has been made but is still insisting the administration can do more to meet their demands. Kent Syverud, Chancellor of the university, released what he called the administrations final response to THE General Body Wednesday night.

THE General Body has been holding a sit-in at Crouse-Hinds Hall for the past ten days. Colton Jones, a member of THE General Body, says that specific problems, such as the closing of the advocacy center, have yet to be addressed by the current administration.

   Syracuse University officials have taken the first step in going completely smoke-free. A letter was sent out earlier today to Syracuse students, faculty, and staff, stating that Syracuse University will become a smoke-free campus beginning July 1, 2015.  Officials say this will allow the campus to provide a healthy environment for students to thrive.  All Syracuse University owned buildings will be going smoke-free including all outdoor venues with the exception of the Carrier Dome, the Sheraton Hotel, Drumlins, and Syracuse Stage.

Syracuse University is marking the 25th anniversary of the falling of the Berlin Wall by building another one. However, this replica Berlin Wall is meant to be interactive, as students and faculty from Syracuse University and Fayetteville-Manlius High School discovered yesterday when they gathered outside of the Maxwell School.  They wrote their own messages on the symbolic wall, built by SU’s School of Architecture.
