Timeline: I believe this project will take about 2-3 years to be established.


This project aims to educate the student body of UIC, of the negative effects of  smoking has on the body and to stop this horrible behavior.This project will seek to place posters on high traffic areas In Student Center East, and the Daley Library, and then it can spread campus wide for better results.

Information on the the poster can have, the numerous negative effects of smoking, the name of the chemicals that are include in the fabrited of  cigarettes.

Smoking is a national health issue that affects everybody, this can be seen with the fact that, “ Over 480,000 people in America die from tobacco use and exposure to secondhand smoke, making it the leading cause of preventable death in this country(


Estimated Budget:$500-600(Printing materials).

  1. I think this is a great idea to educate the student body. It is cost efficient, but pictures have more impact than a phrase. So, I would suggest on some posters to print graphic images of a smokers body. For example, if you print a picture of black lungs, that will have a greater impact than giving a fact. To sum up, I think images will have a greater impact than words. I would also suggest to put posters up where students tend to sneak a cigarette on campus. That will create an immediate impact to stop smoking. But i think it’s a great idea which will help drive the campus tobacco free.


  2. Good idea! This is also a topic I want to do more research on. One thing I would think about more is finding ways to actually engage with the students. Posters are great, but I think they can be easily ignored. I think having a direct conversation with students will encourage them to think about the effects smoking has on campus, environment, and themselves.


  3. I would like to be a part of this project, some days I don’t mind people smoking but others it starts to be an inconvenience in my day. Those who continue to smoke even after the ads have mostly accepted the side affects of their actions.
