Ray English, who served as Azariah Smith Root director of libraries for 25 years, removes a “Designated Smoking Area” sign near the base of the Mudd Learning Center ramp to prepare for Oberlin’s new Tobacco-Free Policy. The policy prohibits the use of all tobacco products by students, staff, faculty, and visitors on campus property. The policy goes into effect today, July 1, 2016.
