New rankings released earlier this week not only declare NC State one of the nation’s best institutions for undergraduate education, but also one of the “greenest.”
“The Best 368 Colleges,” published annually by education services company The Princeton Review, ranked schools in eight categories after culling information from academic ratings, institutional data and student surveys. Rating scores are given on a scale of 60 to 99.
“In our opinion, each school in this book is first-rate academically,” said Robert Franek, author of The Princeton Review. “But their campus cultures and offerings differ greatly. We believe college applicants need to know far more about schools than an academic ranking to identify which colleges may be best for them. It’s all about the fit.”
