2013 Green College




Indiana State University is one of the 322 most environmentally responsible colleges in the U.S. and Canada, according to The Princeton Review (www.PrincetonReview.com). The education services company known for its test prep programs and college rankings, ratings and guidebooks, profiles Indiana State University 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 Company analyzed data from the survey about the schools' course offerings, campus infrastructure,activities and career preparation to measure their commitment to the environment and to sustainability. 

Published April 16, a few days before the April 22 celebration of Earth Day, the 215-page guide is the only free comprehensive resource of its kind:  it can be downloaded at www.princetonreview.com/green-guide and www.centerforgreenschools.org/greenguide

The 322 school profiles in the guide feature essential information for applicants – facts and stats on school demographics, admission,financial aid – plus write-ups on the schools' specific sustainability initiatives.  A "Green Facts"sidebar reports on a wide range of topics from the school's use of renewable energy sources, recycling and conservation programs to the availability of environmental studies and career guidance for green jobs.
