Edgewood College Makes Green List: The Princeton Review

  • Friday, Oct 19, 2018
Madison, Wis. (October 18, 2018) – Edgewood College is one of the mostPlanting trees on campus environmentally responsible colleges according to The Princeton Review. The education services company known  for its test prep and tutoring services, books, and college rankings features Edgewood College in the  2018  edition of  its free book,  The  Princeton  Review Guide to 399 Green Colleges. This marks the fourth consecutive year the College has made this list.

“We  strongly recommend Edgewood College and the other fine colleges in this guide to the  many  environmentally-minded  students  who  seek  to  study  and  live  at  green colleges,”  Robert  Franek,  Editor-in-Chief at The Princeton Review said. Franek noted that college applicants and their parents are increasingly concerned about the environment and sustainability issues. Among  nearly 11,000 teens and parents The Princeton Review surveyed earlier this year for its 2018  “College Hopes & Worries Survey,” 63% overall said having information about a college’s commitment to the environment would  influence their decision to  apply to or attend the school.

The Princeton Review chose the schools for this ninth annual edition of its “green guide” based on data from the company’s 2017-18 survey of hundreds of four-year colleges concerning the schools’ commitments to the environment and sustainability. The Princeton Review used data from its institutional survey and its surveys of students at the 399 colleges in the book to tally the ranking list.
