Harvard has been named one of the 322 most environmentally responsible colleges in the U.S. and Canada, according to the Princeton Review. The education services company known for its test prep programs and college rankings, ratings and guidebooks, profiles Harvard in the fourth annual edition of its free downloadable book, “The Princeton Review’s Guide to 322 Green Colleges.”

The Princeton Review chose the schools for this guide based on a 50-question survey it conducted in 2012 of administrators at hundreds of four-year colleges. The 215-page guide is the only free comprehensive resource of its kind and can be downloaded at www.princetonreview.com/green-guide and www.centerforgreenschools.org/greenguide.  Harvard has also appeared on the Princeton Review’s Green Honor Roll, released annually in July, for all five years it has been in existence.

“We are truly pleased to recommend Harvard along with all of the fine schools in this book to the many students seeking colleges that practice and promote environmentally-responsible choices and practices,” said Robert Franek, Senior VP/Publisher, The Princeton Review,

Franek noted his Company’s recent survey findings indicating significant interest among college applicants in attending “green” colleges. “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.
