University of Rochester on Princeton Review List

The University of Rochester is on the “The Best 381 Colleges” 2017 list from the Princeton Review. The rankings are based on a variety of topics including academics, financial aid and quality of life.  Also considered in these rankings in how “green” colleges are. As explained on the Princeton Review’s website:

“Specifically, it includes 1) whether students have a campus quality of life that is both healthy and sustainable, 2) how well a school is preparing students for employment in the clean-energy economy of the 21st century as well as for citizenship in a world now defined by environmental concerns and opportunities and 3) how environmentally responsible a school’s policies are.

Additionally, The Princeton Review, the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) and Sierra magazine have collaborated on an effort to streamline the reporting process for institutions that choose to participate in various higher education sustainability assessments. The intent of this initiative is to reduce and streamline the amount of time campus staff spend tracking sustainability data and completing related surveys.”
