Six Oregon universities have landed on Princeton Review's annual Guide to Green Colleges.
Presented in partnership with the U.S. Green Building Council, this year's Green Colleges list features 322 public and private colleges from the U.S. and Canada. The rating, based on a proprietary index, uses a scale between 60 and 99 to determine the top schools. The schools are not ranked by score once they make the list.
All six Oregon schools on this year's list have been named to the Green Colleges guide in past years.
The smallest school from Oregon named to the list was Linfield College, the McMinnville-based undergraduate university. The report noted Linfield's student-run efforts around conservation and sustainable food advocacy, as well as a campus focus on energy efficiency.
