We are happy to announce that the American College of Greece (ACG) is one of the 420 ‘greenest’ colleges according to the Princeton Review for 2022.
The Princeton Review chose the 420 universities and colleges included in its 12th annual “Guide to Green Colleges” out of the 835 schools it surveyed during the academic year 2020 – 2021, examining the institutions’ commitment to sustainability-related practices, policies, and programs. Colleges are rated based on a Green Rating ranging from 60-99 with 80 serving as the base rating for all 420 institutions included in this year’s guide. ACG’s ranking, results from the STARS report submitted in 2020 by the Office of Public Affairs. The overwhelming majority of the schools are in the U.S. (391), except for twenty-six that are located in Canada, one in Ecuador, and one in Egypt. Notably, the only European institution earning a spot on the list is ACG! This is the fourth time the College has been included in this list.
“Given the sobering indicators of climate change and global calls to prioritize sustainability, we are pleased to shine a light on these schools and recommend them for their exceptional commitment to the environment,” said Rob Franek, Editor in Chief of The Princeton Review.
Highlighting the importance of a college’s commitment to sustainability for prospective students, Franek noted that 78% percent of the 11,133 college applicants responding to the Princeton Review’s 2021 College Hopes & Worries Survey said that having such information would affect their decision to apply to or attend a school.
