From Green Right Now Reports

The Princeton Review has released its third annual green ratings list of colleges: a measure of how environmentally friendly the institutions are on a scale of 60 to 99. The company tallied the rating for 703 institutions based on its institutional surveys of colleges in 2009-10 concerning their environmentally related practices, policies and academic offerings.

The Green Rating scores appear in the profiles of the 703 schools that The Princeton Review has posted on www.PrincetonReview.com. They are also in the profiles of those schools in the new 2011 editions of three Princeton Review guidebooks: “The Best 373 Colleges” ($22.99) and “Complete Book of Colleges” ($26.99) – both on sale Aug. 3, and “The Best Northeastern Colleges” ($16.99) – on sale Aug. 10, all published by Random House.

The Princeton Review also named 18 colleges to its “2011 Green Rating Honor Roll” – a list of colleges that received the highest possible score (99) in its Green Rating tallies this year. Published in “The Best 373 Colleges” guidebook, the list includes (in alphabetical order):
