Student laying on the grass, studying on front campusRandolph College was recently ranked 23rd in Best College Reviews’ national list of Top 25 Green Colleges for 2018, alongside several larger institutions like the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, the University of Virginia, the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, and the University of Maryland.

In the summary about Randolph’s ranking, Best College Reviews referred to Randolph as a “rising star among green universities.”

“Randolph College uses a wide range of initiatives to bring its campus closer to sustainability,” read the summary. “It makes recycling easy by placing separate landfill and single stream recycling bins in each dorm room and participates in RecycleMania. It constantly upgrades facilities to be more energy efficient, and it maintains the grounds with minimal use of equipment that pollutes or requires a lot of energy. Multiple alternative transportation services are made available to students at little or no cost, so they can travel to and from campus with a minimal carbon footprint.”

Best College Reviews compiled its rankings using data from College Navigator regarding tuition, as well as program information gleaned directly from each institution’s official website. The methodology used to determine the rankings is based on tuition, placement on the Princeton Review’s comprehensive evaluation of green schools in America, and the school’s overall rating by U.S. News & World Report.
