Pitzer College Among Princeton Review's Guide to 311 Green Colleges

Claremont, Calif. (April 22, 2011) — Pitzer College was among the schools named in Princeton Review's 2011 Guide to 311 Green Colleges.

Pitzer College was recognized for its sustainability efforts from the Residential Life Project, which will position the college as the first nationally to have all LEED certified residence halls, to the classes in environmental studies, science and justice that provide opportunities to study at the Firestone Restoration Center in Costa Rica. Student clubs and programs including the Eco Center, Garden Club and Green Bike Programs were also recognized.

The Guide takes a quantitative and qualitative look at a school's sustainability efforts in areas identified as most important to students: 1) whether students have a campus quality of life that is both healthy and sustainable; 2) how well a school is preparing students for employment in the green economy; 3) how environmentally responsible a school's policies are. This report is a partnership between Princeton Review and the US Green Building Council.
