California State University, Northridge has again been featured as one of the most environmentally responsible colleges worldwide by The Princeton Review, a leading tutoring, test prep and college admission services company.
The schools were chosen based on data gathered from the company’s 2017-2018 survey concerning the schools’ environmental and sustainability efforts. Colleges’ sustainability practices were measured on a “Green Rating” scale between 60-99. Schools with a rating of 80 or higher made it into the guide — CSUN scored a 95.
The ninth annual edition of The Princeton Review’s “Green Guide” surveyed hundreds of four-year colleges to put together their list. The free book, The Princeton Review Guide to 399 Green Colleges, includes “Green Facts” about each school with details such as the availability of transportation alternatives at the schools, and the percentage of the school food budgets spent on local and organic food sources.
The profiles also include each school’s admission requirements, cost and financial aid, and student body statistics.
The Princeton Review first published this guide in 2010 and remains the only free and annually updated guide to green colleges.
