University named Green College by Princeton Review


Ohio University is one of 14 Ohio universities rated as environmentally responsible "green colleges" by the Princeton Review.

The test preparation and college admission services company, in collaboration with the Center for Green Schools at the U.S. Green Building Council, profiles 330 U.S. schools and two in Canada that are committed to sustainability in their academics, campus infrastructure, activities and career preparation.

The free guidebook features:

• School profiles that include sustainability initiatives, plus information on the school's use of renewable energy, recycling and conservation programs 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.

The other 13 Ohio universities listed are Bowling Green State University, Case Western Reserve University, The College of Wooster, Denison University, Kenyon College, Miami University, Oberlin College, Ohio State University, Ohio Wesleyan University, University of Cincinnati, University of Dayton, University of Mount Union and Xavier University.
