Holy Cross Named to Princeton Review’s 2013 Green College Guide

Rather than ending up in the trash, all unwanted belongings are collected and redistributed to Worcester-area organizations such the Salvation Army. Photo by: Matthew Atanian

The College of the Holy Cross is one of the 322 most environmentally responsible colleges in the U.S. and Canada, according to The Princeton Review, which included the College in its “Guide to 322 Green Colleges.” Schools highlighted in the guide were chosen according to several measurements of their commitment to the environment and sustainability, including course offerings, campus infrastructure, activities and career preparation.

As noted by The Princeton Review, Holy Cross is on track to realize its goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2040. In recent years, the Integrated Science Complex and Figge Hall—the College’s newest residence hall—have both achieved LEED Gold certification, and renewable energy initiatives like a partnership with TransCanada, a renewable energy supplier, has already reduced the school’s carbon footprint by 28 percent.

The guide continues: “Internships and projects working with environmental organizations and not-for-profit groups throughout the Worcester area are plentiful and many students participate through Holy Cross’ Environmental Studies program, and student run environmental groups like Eco-Action.”

The Princeton Review created its “Guide to 322 Green Colleges” in partnership with the Center for Green Schools at the U.S. Green Building Council, with support from United Technologies Corp., founding sponsor of the Center for Green Schools.
