April 20, 2010

Greetings and congratulations! We are pleased to report that we selected your school for inclusion in our new free guidebook, “The Princeton Review’s Guide to 286 Green Colleges.” Published in partnership with the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), this is the first free, comprehensive guidebook focused solely on colleges and universities that have demonstrated an above average commitment to sustainability activities and initiatives.

We chose the 286 schools included in the Guide based on the “Green Rating” scores the schools received in the summer of 2009 when we published Green Rating scores for 697 schools in our online college profiles and/or annual college guidebooks. The Princeton Review’s “Green Rating” is a numerical score from 60 – 99 that’s based on several data points. Of 697 schools that The Princeton Review gave “Green Ratings” to in 2009, the 286 schools in the Guide received scores in the 80th or higher percentile.  Please understand that The Princeton Review did not rank the schools in this book hierarchically (1 to 286). If you need to check your school’s “Green Rating” score, you can find it in your school’s profile on princetonreview.com .

Your school’s “green” profile will be included in the Guide, which can be downloaded at princetonreview.com/greenguide and usgbc.org/campus. USA TODAY also has a feature about the Guide in today’s print edition. The Guide is also accessible on the USA TODAY website.
