With a nod to Earth Day, the Princeton Review has released its guide to 322 of the greenest col­leges in the United States, with help from the Center for Green Schools at
at the U.S. Green Building Council.

Robert Franek, senior vice pres­i­dent of pub­lishing, said in a release that stu­dents have increas­ingly con­sid­ered col­leges’ envi­ron­mental foot­prints before com­mit­ting to a school.

Among 9,955 col­lege appli­cants who par­tic­i­pated in our 2013 ‘Col­lege Hopes & Wor­ries Survey,’ 62 per­cent said having infor­ma­tion about a school’s com­mit­ment to the envi­ron­ment would influ­ence their deci­sion to apply to or attend the school,” he said.
