Trevor Browne students were the driving force behind the City of Phoenix instituting a no-tobacco policy at El Oso Park, located just north of the campus. The students are members of a statewide student coalition against tobacco use called Students Taking a New Direction, or STAND. They joined Mayor Greg Stanton and Councilman Daniel Valenzuela to install tobacco-free zone signs, July 28. The signs were provided by the county public-health department and placed in smoking “hot spots” that students identified during observations and resident surveys.
