Oregon State University
Princeton Review-Green Colleges
Oregon State University has done it again! For the fourth time in a row, OSU has received a prestigious award from The Princeton Review for being a ‘green’ college! OSU received 95 points out of a possible 99 as a ‘green’ school in “The Princeton Review’s Guide to 322 Green Colleges: 2014 Edition.” The Princeton Review analyzes data from the survey about the schools’ course offerings, campus infrastructure, activities and career preparation to measure their commitment to the environment and to sustainability.
“It’s great to be recognized by Princeton Review for a fourth year in a row,” said Brandon Trelstad, OSU’s sustainability coordinator. “I believe it’s OSU’s diverse and broad sustainability efforts that have gotten us this far. Student efforts, specifically, have been key in maintaining our leadership role.”
Part of what has made OSU a sustainability leader is the volume and breadth of sustainability related work conducted here. Our faculty and staff achieve amazing things that align with OSU’s mission to promote economic, social, cultural and environmental progress for the people of Oregon, the nation and the world. That, combined with an ever increasingly engaged student population has helped maintain OSU’s leadership in sustainability. Nice work, everyone!
