About the Freedom From Smoking® Program

The program is offered by Health Promotion and Wellness. Our program is facilitated by a health educator who has been trained by the American Lung Association to offer the program.

Freedom From Smoking is a seven week program that is strategically designed to help students quit and remain smoke free. The program encourages students to build a support system as they progress through the program toward success. Each weekly module helps students address a different aspect of the quitting process, such as learning stress management techniques, what to do when a craving comes, controlling your weight while quitting, and much more.

The most recent American College Health Association, National College Health Assessment indicates that 91 percent of Penn State students do not smoke. Through this evidence-based program, Health Promotion and Wellness will provide the assistance students may need to quit.


Freedom From Smoking is a free program.
