ACG on “The Princeton Review’s Guide to Green Colleges” for the second year in a row!

The Office of Public Affairs is happy to announce that the American College of Greece (ACG) is one of the 413 most environmentally responsible colleges according to the Princeton Review.

The Princeton Review chose the schools for its tenth annual Guide to Green Colleges, a free resource that the education service company has created since 2010. This year, the company chose the top 413 ‘green colleges’ out of nearly 700 schools it surveyed in 2018–19 with strong commitments to green practices and programs. Most of the schools that made the guide are in the U.S, except for sixteen that are in Canada and one in Egypt. The only European academic institution on the list is ACG!

“These schools are standouts for their exemplary commitments to sustainability,” said Rob Franek, The Princeton Review’s Editor-in-Chief. “With initiatives ranging from solar-powered residence halls and tray-less dining halls to robust offerings in environmental studies, they are, each in their own ways, outstanding institutions for students seeking to study and live at a green college.”

Franek cited findings of a survey by The Princeton Review indicating a high level of interest among college applicants and their parents about environmental and sustainability issues, who said that having information about a college’s commitment to the environment would affect their decision to apply to or attend the school.

The profiles in The Princeton Review’s Guide to 413 Green Colleges provide detailed information on each school’s use of renewable energy, recycling and conservation programs, availability of environmental studies, and career guidance for green jobs. The profiles also provide information on admission requirements, cost, financial aid, and student body facts and stats.
