Using e-cigarettes on Chemeketa property is now prohibited on all property owned or controlled by Chemeketa. You can review the details of our smoke- free policy on chemeketa.edu. Please notify Public Safety to report a violation of this policy.
The Chemeketa Board of Education decided at the end of the winter term to treat e-Cigarettes in the same way that conventional cigarettes are prohibited on all college campuses.
