For the second consecutive year, Wesleyan is one of the nation's most environmentally responsible colleges, according to The Princeton Review. The College earned a rating of 84/99.
The Princeton Review chose the 413 schools based on a survey the company conducted in 2018–19 of administrators at hundreds of four-year colleges about their institutions’ commitments to the environment and sustainability.
"We salute—and strongly recommend—Wesleyan to the many environmentally-minded students who want to study and live at a green college," said Rob Franek, The Princeton Review's Editor-in-Chief.
Franek noted that college applicants and their parents are increasingly concerned about the environment and sustainability issues. Among the 11,900 teens and parents The Princeton Review surveyed earlier this year for its 2019 College Hopes & Worries Survey, 64% said that having information about a college's commitment to the environment would influence their decision to apply to or attend the school.
