Later this week an Assembly committee will hold a hearing on improving access to financial aid for college students. One of the issues will be better access for part-time community college students, who are the fastest growing group.

Top officials in the SUNY system want to ban all tobacco use on its 64 colleges campuses.  Adam Wolfe has the story.

But if the SUNY Board of Trustees has its way, smokers won't be able to light up anywhere on SUNY's 64 campuses -- and they mean anywhere -- including outdoor parks.
