Monmouth University is one of the nation’s most environmentally responsible colleges, according to The Princeton Review.
The education services company features Monmouth University in its online resource, “The Princeton Review Guide to Green Colleges: 2023 Edition,” published October 25, 2022.
The Princeton Review chose the schools in the guide based on its survey of administrators at 713 colleges during the 2021-22 academic year and surveys of students attending the colleges. The company editors analyzed more than 25 survey data points to select the 455 schools chosen for the guide.
“We strongly recommend Monmouth University to the increasing number of students who care about the environment and want their ‘best-fit’ college to also ideally be a green one,” said Rob Franek, The Princeton Review’s editor-in-chief. “Monmouth demonstrates an exemplary commitment to sustainability and to green practices—and it offers excellent academic programs.”
Franek noted that The Princeton Review has seen an increasing level of interest among students in attending green colleges. Of the more than 10,000 college applicants the company polled for its 2022 College Hopes & Worries Survey, 77 percent said having information about a college’s commitment to the environment would affect their decision to apply to or attend a school. A report on the survey findings are available online.
The school profiles in “The Princeton Review Guide to Green Colleges” report on the colleges’ uses of renewable energy, their recycling and conservation programs, the availability of environmental studies in their academic offerings, and their career guidance for green jobs. The profiles also include information on the schools’ admission requirements, cost, and financial aid.
Monmouth University also appears in the annual college guide, “The Best 388 Colleges: 2023 Edition,” and on the ranking lists for Fire Safety Honor Roll and Best Northeastern Regional Colleges.
