October 07, 2016
ALLIANCE, Ohio—The University of Mount Union is one of the 361 most environmentally responsible colleges in the country according to the Princeton Review (www.PrincetonReview.com). The Princeton Review chose the schools for this seventh annual edition of its "green guide" based on data from the company's 2015-16 survey of hundreds of four-year colleges concerning the schools' commitments to the environment and sustainability.
Published October 4, the 2016 edition of its free book, The Princeton Review Guide to 361 Green Colleges can be downloaded at www.princetonreview.com/green-guide.
"Among more than 10,000 teens and parents who participated in our 2016 College Hopes & Worries Survey, 61% told us that having information about a school’s commitment to the environment would influence their decision to apply to or attend the college," said The Princeton Review's Robert Franek, Senior VP-Publisher. A complete report on that survey is at www.princetonreview.com/college-hopes-worries.
The profiles in The Princeton Review's Guide to 361 Green Colleges provide information about each school's admission requirements, cost and financial aid, and student body stats. They also include "Green Facts" about the schools with details on the availability of transportation alternatives at the schools and the percentage of the school food budgets spent on local/organic food.
The Princeton Review first published this guide in 2010. It remains the only free, annually updated downloadable guide to green colleges. The company is also known for its dozens of categories of college rankings in its annual books, The Best 381 Colleges and Colleges That Pay You Back.
