Green Colleges in the United States

Thanks to Melissa Hincha-Ownby for this blog entry about green colleges:
Every year, The Princeton Review publishes its list of the best colleges in the nation. As part of the list, the nation’s top green colleges are recognized and named to the Green Rating Honor Roll. Fifteen post-secondary institutions, including seven public colleges, made the 2010 honor roll.
The colleges were among 697 institutions that The Princeton Review included in their green ratings system. The green ratings were determined by using a university’s sustainability policies, eco-friendly practices and eco-minded academic programs. In order to make the honor roll, schools had to score 99 points, which is the maximum available.
