Princeton Review names Plymouth State University one of nation’s greenest colleges

May 22nd, 2013 by Lynn

    PLYMOUTH—Plymouth State University’s ongoing commitment to environmental sustainability has led to its being named among North America’s greenest colleges.

    The 2013 Princeton Review’s Guide to 322 Green Colleges is an indepth look at the most environmentally friendly institutions of higher learning. The Princeton Review, in collaboration with the Center for Green Schools at the U.S. Green Building Council, noted PSU has demonstrated ‘notable commitments to sustainability in their academic offerings, campus infrastructure, activities and career preparation.’ PSU President Sara Jayne Steen said the students, faculty, and staff are dedicated to sustainability and the ranking recognizes the University’s achievements. 

    “Members of the campus community are rightly committed to environmental sustainability,” said Steen. “You see that in coursework, student programming, the campus landscaping, even in dining services. Many people deserve recognition for their thoughtful and multifaceted work.”

    The Review noted “there is a rising interest among students in attending colleges that practice, teach, and support environmentally responsible choices.” This is the third consecutive year Plymouth State has been included in the greenest college ranking by the Princeton Review.

    The Princeton Review chose the schools based on a detailed survey it conducted in 2012 of administrators at hundreds of colleges across the U.S. and in Canada to tally its annual “Green Rating” scores of colleges for its school profiles in its college guidebooks and website.

    Brian Eisenhauer, PSU’s Director of Environmental Sustainability, said he is encouraged that the University’s sustainability efforts are being recognized.

    “Environmental sustainability is very important to our identity, operations, and the educational experiences we offer students at Plymouth State University,” said Eisenhauer. “Having our efforts recognized by third party evaluators such as The Princeton Review is something we take pride in, as it demonstrates that our commitment to sustainability is a serious and successful one.”

    Robert Franek, Senior VP/Publisher, The Princeton Review, noted the significant interest today’s college-bound students have about green issues.

    “We recommend these schools to all students seeking colleges that practice and promote environmentally- responsible choices,” said Franek.
