Mount Union Featured In “The Princeton Review’s Guide To 375 Green Colleges: 2017 Edition”
October 06, 2017
ALLIANCE, Ohio – The University of Mount Union has been named to The Princeton Review’s Green Guide as one of 375 green colleges. Colleges and Universities receive the award based on the 2016-17 survey provided by the company for college applicants and their parents. The survey focuses on four-year colleges dedicated to sustainability and saving the environment. The full list of colleges in the “Green Guide” can be found at www.princetonreview.com/green-guide.
“Our online Green Guide offers really helpful information for students about green majors and careers and the benefits of choosing a green college,” said Robert Franek, The Princeton Review’s Editor-in-Chief. “We know that students are increasingly interested in this issue and we are happy to be able to help them make an informed decision. Among more than 10,000 teens and parents who participated in our 2017 College Hopes & Worries Survey, 64 percent told us that having information about a school’s commitment to the environment would influence their decision to apply to or attend the college.”
Schools appearing on the “Green Guide” show commitment to sustainability with regards to campus policies, career preparation and academics. Each school has a profile on the website to provide basic information allowing perspective students to learn more about the schools they are interested in. The profiles include statistics about financial aid, tuition, application information, campus demographics and sustainability.
