Princeton Review Names SUCO to "GREEN" Colleges Guide

For the second consecutive year, the Princeton Review has included SUNY Oneonta on its list of colleges that demonstrate astrong commitment to sustainability in their academic offerings, campus infrastructure, activities, and career preparation. Its 2011 “Guide to 311 Green Colleges” recognizes 308 American and 3 Canadian institutions of higher education.

In describing SUNY Oneonta, the Princeton Review highlighted the college’s adherence to green construction standards, the programs of the Biological Field Station in Cooperstown, and the recycling and sustainability efforts of Oneonta Auxiliary Services.

Based on a survey of hundreds of colleges and universities nationwide, the guide bases its ratings on factors such as an institution’s commitment to the United States Green Building Council’s LEED building standards, environmental literacy programs, formal sustainability committees, use of renewable energy resources, recycling, and conservation programs.
