Randolph College has once again been named one of the nation’s most “green” colleges, according to new rankings released by The Princeton Review.
The College was included in The Princeton Review Guide to Green Colleges: 2022 Edition, which recognizes the 422 most environmentally responsible colleges in the nation.
Schools were chosen based on a survey of administrators at 835 colleges about their institutions’ sustainability-related policies, practices, and programs.
Specifically, a panel of experts looked at whether students have a campus quality of life that is both healthy and sustainable, how environmentally responsible a school’s policies are, and how well it is preparing students for employment in the clean-energy economy of the 21st century as well as citizenship in a world defined by environmental concerns and opportunities.
Randolph received a Green Rating of 99 (based on a scale of 60-99) for 2022. The College has been recognized by the publication for several years, touted by the guide for being “ambitious and forward-thinking” and striving toward sustainability using “engaging, inventive practices.”
Green practices, programs, and offerings have become a point of interest among college applicants and their parents, according to The Princeton Review. Seventy-eight percent of the more than 11,000 respondents to its 2021 College Hopes & Worries Survey said information about a college’s commitment to the environment would affect their decision to apply or attend.
The Green Rating scores appear in each school’s profile on The Princeton Review website and in profiles included in the 2022 edition of The Princeton Review book The Best 386 Colleges.
