Chico State among green elite

Wildcats recognized by Princeton Review’s Green Honor Roll

Chico State earned more national recognition for its eco-friendly practices by making Princeton Review‘s 2013 Green Honor Roll.

Of the 806 colleges and universities surveyed for sustainability efforts like waste diversion, energy consumption and alternative transportation programs, Chico State was one of just 21 schools to score a 99, the highest possible ranking, according to a Chico State press release. Other California institutions included on the Green Honor Roll are San Francisco State, UC Santa Cruz and Pasadena’s Caltech.

“This honor is a result of broad institutional buy-in and support for our sustainability goals,” said Fletcher Alexander, Chico State’s sustainability coordinator. “Sustainability on this campus isn’t just in facilities or academics—it belongs to everyone and is a fundamental part of our culture.”
