The Princeton Review has released its list of the top 353 Green Colleges in the U.S., and the coolest part is that people really care about their school's commitment to being environmentally responsible. The schools were ranked based on their "commitment to sustainability," which includes everything from their use of renewable energy to the resources they have available to prepare kids for green careers.
The Princeton Review's Senior VP/Publisher, Robert Franek, said that of the "10,000 teens who participated in [their] “2015 College Hopes & Worries Survey," 61 percent [said] that having information about a school's commitment to the environment would influence their decision to apply to or attend the college."
