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: 2023 Edition, which recognizes the 455 most environmentally responsible colleges in the nation.
Schools were chosen based on a survey of administrators at 713 colleges about their institutions’ sustainability-related policies, practices, and programs.
The school profiles report on each college’s use of renewable energy, their recycling and conservation programs, the availability of environmental studies in their academic offerings, and their career guidance for green jobs.
Randolph 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-seven percent of the more than 10,000 respondents to its 2022 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 2023 edition of The Princeton Review’s “Best 387 Colleges.”
