KENT, Ohio - Kent State University could become a smoke-free campus next year, if the Ohio Board of Regents has its way.
University administrators are reviewing a recommendation from the Ohio Board of Regents , suggesting all public universities and colleges in Ohio ban the use of tobacco product s on their campuses.
