"Among 10,116 college applicants who participated in our 2014 'College Hopes & Worries Survey,' 61% said having information about a school’s commitment to the environment would influence their decision to apply to or attend the school," says Rob Franek, Senior VP/Publisher, The Princeton Review.
In order to find out more information about sustainability practices on campuses, these students can now download a free copy of The Princeton Review's Guide to 332 Green Colleges: 2014 Edition. This is the fifth year that The Princeton Review has collaborated with the Center for Green Schools at the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) to put out the only free, comprehensive, annual guide to green colleges.
The guide features:
- School profiles with information on admission, financial aid, and sustainability initiatives, plus "Green Facts" sidebars reporting on everything from the school's use of renewable energy, recycling and conservation programs to the availability of environmental studies and career guidance for green jobs.
- Lists of schools in the guide with LEED-certified buildings and of those that are signatories of the American College & University Presidents' Climate Commitment.
- Advice for living green on campus, plus a glossary of 40+ green terms and acronyms from AASHE to "zero waste."
With Earth Day (April 22nd) right around the corner, make sure you download your copy today!
