Radford University’s commitment to building and maintaining a sustainable and environmentally friendly campus has again landed it on The Princeton Review’s annual guide to green colleges.

Known for its test preparatory programs and college rankings, ratings and guidebooks, The Princeton Review profiled Radford University in its Guide to Green Colleges: 2019 Edition. The guide was published on the company’s website on October 22.

Radford University has been included in The Princeton Review’s Guide to Green Colleges since 2010, making this year its tenth consecutive on the list.

“We’re excited to again be recognized by The Princeton Review as a green campus,” said Radford University Sustainability Manager Josh Nease. “Ten consecutive years of this accolade shows the University’s longstanding commitment to sustainability and constant improvement.”

The Princeton Review surveyed nearly 700 institutions about sustainability initiatives and policies, and from those, selected 413 colleges and universities to include in its guide. It chose institutions based on a green rating it gave to each school using data from its surveys.

The guide provides information about each profiled institution’s admission requirements, cost and financial aid and student demographics. It also includes “green facts” about each school.

Colleges with Green Rating scores of 80 or higher made it into the 2019 guide. Radford University scored a 92 out a possible 99.

“We salute – and strongly recommend – Radford University to the many environmentally minded students who want to study and live at a green college,” said The Princeton Review editor-in-chief Rob Franek.

Most colleges and universities selected for the list are in the United States. The others include 16 in Canada, one in Egypt and one in Greece.

Radford University lists sustainability as one of its core values, and is committed to integrating sustainable practices into every area of operation and engaging its students across the curriculum to learn, discover and contribute to positive environmental solutions.
