Read the full story from the Princeton Review. The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign made the honor roll for achieving the highest possible score.
The Princeton Review – known for its education services helping students choose and get in to colleges – today reported its annual “Green Ratings” of colleges. The project, now in its sixth year, offers a measure of how environmentally friendly the schools are on a scoring scale of 60 to 99.
The Company tallied the scores for 832 colleges this year, based on data it collected in its 2012-13 surveys of schools concerning their sustainability-related practices, policies and academic offerings. (Criteria follow.)
The “Green Rating” scores appear in the profiles of the colleges posted today on www.PrincetonReview.com and in the profiles of the schools in the 2014 editions of two Princeton Review guidebooks that go on sale tomorrow, August 6: “The Best 378 Colleges” ($23.99) and “The Complete Book of Colleges” ($26.99), published by Random House.
