How Green Was My College
Carlson, Scott
Chronicle of Higher Education, v54 n34 pA4 May 2008
You cannot learn anything about a college these days without hearing about what that college is doing for the planet, whether it is buying local food or shrinking its carbon footprint. A number of organizations are eager to evaluate colleges on their efforts. Grist, Sierra, and Current magazines and the Sustainable Endowments Institute all have had their lists of top green schools. Colleges on such lists have of course cited their high scores in their publicity efforts. The Princeton Review announced last week that it would issue green ratings -- along with its ratings of student quality of life, campus fire safety, and so on -- in coming college guides for prospective students.
