MARQUETTE, MI (AP)--   Northern Michigan University officials say the Marquette campus is cleaner and some students and employees are likely healthier two years into a tobacco ban.  

Spokeswoman Cindy Paavola says there are far fewer cigarette butts and remnants of chewing tobacco at the school since the policy took effect.  Some faculty, staff, and students also have told university officials the rule change led them to quit smoking or using other tobacco products.
