Chico State gets green honor

Princeton Review gives thumbs-up two years in a row

Chico State recently became one of 22 colleges and universities in the United States to make the Princeton Review’s 2014 Green Honor Roll, and one of just eight to make both the 2014 and 2013 honor lists compiled by the standardized-test consulting company.

Inclusion on the honor roll took into account such things as an institution’s waste diversion, environmentally conscious building practices and sustainability policies, according to a Chico State press release.

“It is evidence of hard work and a long-term vision by many campus-community members who have together transformed Chico State into a true national leader in sustainability,” said Fletcher Alexander, campus sustainability coordinator for the university’s Institute for Sustainable Development, of the award.
