Sierra Magazine released their third annual list of “Cool Schools,” a list of the top 10 greenest 4-year colleges and universities. This is a great green back-to-school story, especially considering that a recent survey by Princeton Review showed that two-thirds of university applicants say that a school’s environmental report card would influence whether they’d enroll.
With “green” becoming a larger and larger influential factor in the college decision making process, universities and colleges across the US are doing their part to curb their environmental footprint. These colleges and universities are taking big steps with innovative programs like free bikes for students, organic gardens on campus, solar panels on buildings, and more; they are enticing students and helping the environment simultaneously.
