UNC Asheville is growing greener this fall, with another consecutive year in The Princeton Review’s Guide to Green Colleges.

The 2018 edition was published Oct. 16 and includes 399 colleges in the unranked list.

“There are a handful of colleges in the world that include sustainability as a core value in their strategic plans. UNC Asheville doesn’t just talk the talk, it walks the walks, each and every day,” said UNC Asheville’s Director of Sustainability Sonia Marcus.

The  Princeton  Review  chose  the  schools  for  this  ninth  annual  edition  of  its  “green  guide”  based  on  data  from  the  company’s  2017-18  survey  of  hundreds  of  four-year  colleges  concerning  the  schools’ commitments  to  the  environment  and  sustainability, a UNCA press release noted.

“We are proud to have published this guide since 2010, but we are particularly pleased to release our 2018 edition at this time as October has been designated National Campus Sustainability Month,” said Robert Franek, The Princeton Review’s editor-in-chief. “To all students wanting to study and live at a green college, we strongly recommend the outstanding schools we identify and profile in this guide.”

UNCA scored a “green rating” of 90 out of 99, with the guide noting the university’s sustainability committee and sustainability officer, sustainability-focused degrees, and transportation alternatives such as bike share, car share, shuttles and transit passes.
