Winona State University has been recognized as one of the country’s most environmentally responsible colleges in the 2015 edition of “The Princeton Review’s Guide to 353 Green Colleges.”
WSU is committed to building and supporting a sustainable society and demonstrates sustainability through many platforms such as: campus infrastructure, course and program offerings, student housing, the Sustainability House, participation in the annual nationwide “Recyclemania” competition, and the Purple Bike program and annual Bike Week celebration.
This is the sixth consecutive year WSU has been recognized as a “green” college. Of the 353 colleges named to the list, only seven are in Minnesota. WSU is the only member of the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system to receive this designation.
“The Princeton Review’s Guide to 353 Green Colleges” was created in partnership with the U.S. Green Council. For the 2015 edition, 2,000 schools were invited to take a survey covering three key factors: healthy and sustainable quality of life for students, student preparation for an increasingly green economy, and environmentally responsible school policies. The 353 schools included in the guide were determined to have the highest green rankings and to enhance students’ academic experience and quality of life in significant ways.
