The Greenest Colleges & Universities

Posted by Luke on April 20, 2010

The Princeton Review recently published a guide to the greenest colleges.  It talks about how students’ decisions in choosing a college are  influenced by a university’s sustainability efforts.

  • 66 percent of high school respondents said they would value having information about a college’s commitment to the environment
  • 24 percent said such information would “very much” impact their decision to apply to or attend the school

I was disappointed that neither of my alma maters – Cornell and University of Colorado – were on the Princeton Review’s Green Honor Roll.  CU was previously ranked by the Sierra Club as the #1 most environmental school in the country.  As with most organizations who embark on green missions and must first define what green means to them, I guess the Princeton Review and the Sierra Club have their own definitions for “green.”
