The purpose of this study was to describe the prevalence of self-reported smoking by college-aged students at a Midwestern university as preliminary field work for planning interventions smoking cessation. Subjects: A stratified sample of 521 students for the Core Alcohol and Drug Survey recruited in spring, 2002. Methods: Faculty members volunteered to collect completed surveys from those students who had agreed to participate and submit them to the Core Institute. Data were coded and returned for analysis. Student level classification, age, ethnic origin, marital status, gender, residency, grades and past thirty-day tobacco use were examined. Analyses were run using the SPSS System for Windows, Release 10.0, and an alpha level of 0.05. Results: Regardless of student classification, of those students that reported smoking, the quantity of tobacco use varied considerably from one to two days per month to daily usage. As noted in student classifications, a pattern of tobacco use in students aged 18 to 24 showed a range of tobacco use from to two days per month to daily use. Conversely, the data suggested a dichotomous tobacco relationship of smoking in students between 25 and 45. There was little diversity noted in ethnicity. Higher prevalence of smoking was noted in males, single students, those that lived off campus and those with higher grade point averages. The locations that students smoked most included while in an automobile, at bars and restaurants, and place of residence. Conclusions: Information generated from this study is contributing to strategic planning, including the designation of smoke free housing and designated areas on campus. It is also being used in planning “social norming” campaigns. In addition, the study results are being used in student smoking cessation programming.
