Current residence (β = .11), varsity athlete status (β = -.11), gender (β = .08) and information received about tobacco (β = .11) significantly predicted cigarette use among participants.
Perceptions of tobacco use (β = .02) and year in school (β = .01) were not significant predictors of cigarette use.
All variables explain 4.4% of difference in cigarette use in the last 30 days.
