How Green is Your School?

Submitted by

This is not exactly financial aid related, but I saw this cool website and just had to share. GreenReportCard.org provides in-depth sustainability profiles of three hundred colleges and universities across the United States and Canada. The extensive data for this project is based primarily on information gathered through voluntary surveys of school administrators. There are nine main categories, such as green building, food & recycling, student involvement, and transportation, by which schools are rated.  A compilation of these nine ratings is calculated and then each school is assigned a final grade.

My quick perusal of the website shows grades ranging from D- to A-. I have yet to find an A or an A+ yet…I guess when it comes to green, there’s always a little room for improvement.

Check out you campus and then leave me a comment to let us know how it ranks. I’ll start. My school (Tufts University) earned a B, which seems pretty standard for the other Boston universities I looked up (Brandeis, BC and BU.) The one exception was Harvard, which earned an A-. So how about your school?
