by Sahira Mughal, Simranpreet Kaur and Fadi Mamari
This mixed method study focused on vaping habits of college students and perceived impacts on behavior and academic performance. Voluntary surveys were administered through email to all students. Selected respondents were recruited for focus group participation. The sample included users and non-users. Five hundred fifteen surveys were collected. Nearly half of the participants saw a decline in academics. More than 50% saw behavioral effects and indicated vaping was encouraged by their social environment.
