Le Moyne College has once again been recognized by The Princeton Review as one of the nation’s most environmentally responsible higher educational institutions, according to The Princeton Review’s 2024 Guide to Green Colleges.
The Princeton Review chose the 522 colleges for this edition based on its 2022–23 survey of administrators at 683 colleges concerning their institutions' sustainability-related policies, practices, and programs. The company also surveyed students attending the colleges about their sustainability-related campus experiences. The company editors analyzed more than 25 data points from the surveys to tally Green Rating scores for the schools on a scale of 60 to 99. Colleges that earned a Green Rating of 80 or higher were selected for this edition of the guide.
"With increasing concern about climate change, particularly among younger people who will be most affected by its long-term impact, we are seeing increasing interest among college applicants in attending green colleges” said Rob Franek, editor-in-chief of The Princeton Review. Of 8,800 applicants the company polled for its 2023 College Hopes & Worries Survey, 69% said having information about a college's commitment to the environment would affect their decision to apply to or attend the school. Of that cohort, 28% said such information would contribute “very much” or “strongly” to such a decision.
