This petition is in support of the Wagner College Fresh Air Campaign. Wagner College is suffering significantly from smoking and septic problems. The raw sewage smell on the hill from the HarborView residence to the Union is terrible. The exposure to secondhand smoke and lack of respect for others while smoking is unacceptable. Smokers' failure to smoke in designated areas is wrong and enforcement is necessary to stop this.
Secondhand smoke is a very important thing that people should be aware about for their future. The health risks it causes to the human body is bad. Not only can it cause ear infection, and sudden infant death syndrome to children. It also can cause heart disease and lung cancer for adults. This is a serious issue, secondhand smoke is noted to kill 600,000 annually worldwide.
Signing this petition states that you want to make a change to Wagner College. You agree that secondhand smoke is a big issue at Wagner College and that exposure to secondhand smoke is unacceptable, especially in undesignated smoking areas. Signing this petition also states that you agree that the sewage smell on the Wagner Campus is terrible, and that you support the cause to make a difference to the smell and lack of fresh air at Wagner College.
