Ten Virginia schools make The Princeton Review’s guide to green colleges
Ten Virginia schools made The Princeton Review’s “Guide to 322 Green Colleges,” released earlier this week.
The free guide profiles 320 higher education institutions in the United States and two in Canada that demonstrate a strong commitment to sustainability in their academic offerings, campus infrastructure, activities and career preparation.
Norfolk-based Old Dominion University and Winchester-based Shenandoah University were new to the list this year, joining The College of William and Mary, George Mason University, James Madison University, Radford University, University of Richmond, University of Virginia, Virginia Commonwealth University and Virginia Tech.
To produce the list, The Princeton Review partnered with the U.S. Green Building Council, a national nonprofit organization best-known for developing the LEED green building rating system. The guide is available online.
