Georgia colleges named to Princeton’s “Green” guide

Seven of Georgia’s colleges and universities have been named to the 2014 edition of Princeton University’s Green College Guide, reconginzing institutions for their sustainability efforts.

Agnes Scott and Berry colleges, along with Emory University, Georgia Tech, the University of Georgia and Georgia Southern and Kennesaw State universities were included in the guide that featured 330 institutions in the United States and two in Canada.

To complete the annual guide, the Princeton Review partners with the United States Green Building Council, national nonprofit organization best-known for developing the LEED green building certification program.

Georgia’s institutions were recognized for green initiatives such as farm-to-campus programs that provide fresh fruit and vegetables for student dining services, course offerings focused on sustainability and water recycling methods.
