CARBONDALE, Ill. (AP) - Smokers at Southern Illinois University will only be able to light up in a handful of places on the Carbondale campus starting this summer.
 
Carbondale Chancellor Rita Cheng says that as of July 1 the campus will be effectively smoke-free. Only designated areas in campus parking lots are exceptions.
 
Cheng told the Southern Illinoisan that smoking already is banned within 15 feet of building entrances. The ban includes smoking in dormitories.
 
Cheng hopes the campus someday will be entirely smoke free.
 
Some smokers on campus aren't happy, though. Senior Jon Poynter says he understands people around a smoker may not like the smoke. But he believes the ban denies him his right to smoke.
 
Americans for Nonsmokers' Rights says more than 1,100 college campuses nationwide are smoke free.

Police believe he may have gotten into a fight or argument and he got a ride home from the party. Witnesses told police that he could not tell the driver where he lived, so he got out of the car.
