Hollins University is one of the nation’s most environmentally responsible colleges, according to the 2019 edition of The Princeton Review’s Guide to Green Colleges.
The Princeton Review chose the 413 schools it profiles in the tenth annual edition of the guide 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 strongly recommend Hollins 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 a high level of interest among college applicants and their parents about environmental and sustainability issues. Among the nearly 12,000 teens and parents The Princeton Review surveyed earlier this year, 64% said that having information about a school’s commitment to the environment would affect their decision to apply to or attend a specific school.
An overview of how Hollins is “keeping it green” can be found on the university’s environmental sustainability web page.
