GARDEN CITY, Kan. (AP) -- Tobacco won't be banned at Garden City Community College after all.

The college's board of trustees was told Tuesday that a committee recommends designating smoking areas on the campus. The original proposal was to ban tobacco across the campus.

The Garden City Telegram reports a committee of faculty, staff and students opted for the designated smoking areas for the policy.

Brett Cady, a freshman who was on the committee, says having designated areas is a logical step but he believes eventually the campus will be completely tobacco-free.

College president Herbert Swender said the policy will begin in January. He says there will be at least three and possibly up to five designated areas but their locations haven't been determined.
