If you are looking for some eco travel inspiration, start by visiting the towns across the United States that host green college campuses. Compiled by Princeton Review, this list depicts how many colleges are leading the charge in building LEED-Certifed buildings, growing their own crops in organic farms and gardens, and offering degrees in sustainability.
Top 50 Green Colleges were chosen based on a combination of school-reported data and student opinion, collected in 2016–2017 via institutional and student surveys.
Survey questions covered these key factors:
- whether students have a quality of life on campus that is both healthy and sustainable
- how well a school is preparing students for employment in an increasingly green economy
- how environmentally responsible a school’s policies are
Student survey responses included student ratings of how sustainability issues influenced their education and life on campus; administration and student support for environmental awareness and conservation efforts; and the visibility and impact of student environmental groups.
The College of the Atlantic topped 2017’s list. Do you live near a green college campus? Do you think they could do better?
