Rhodes Listed Among Princeton Review’s Green Colleges
Publication Date: 4/26/2011
Rhodes College is listed in The Princeton Review′s Guide to 311 Green Colleges. The Princeton Review in collaboration with the U.S. Green Building Council has released the second annual edition of this free guidebook saluting the nation’s most environmentally responsible “green colleges.”
College applicants using the guide will find information such as:
- School profiles with application, admission, financial aid and student enrollment information
- Write-ups detailing each school′s environmental and sustainability initiatives
- A section discussing sustainability issues and advice on living green on campus.
"It is quite an honor for Rhodes College to be among this select group of environmentally responsible colleges," says Lynn Conlee, chair of the Environmental Planning Cooperative. "Thanks to the leadership of President Troutt and his decision in 2007 to be a charter signatory of the American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment, Rhodes has been working diligently to reduce our carbon footprint and create environmental awareness among students, faculty and staff. Our inclusion in the Princeton Guide indicates our efforts are paying off."
