UNH has made The Princeton Review's Green College Honor Roll for the tenth year in a row.

UNH has once again been named to The Princeton Review’s Green College Honor Roll.

“We’re so pleased to be on Princeton’s Green Honor Roll for the tenth year in a row,” says Colleen Flaherty, communications and information coordinator for the UNH Sustainability Institute.

UNH was one of 26 schools to make the 2019 Green Honor Roll by receiving a score of 99 — the highest possible score, according to The Princeton Review.

"This is no small feat and makes UNH a very special place."

It’s the latest honor in a long list for UNH, which earned the highest national rating for sustainability — STARS Platinum — just over a year ago. “At the Sustainability Institute, we’re excited to move forward on a number of sustainability initiatives since achieving STARS Platinum,” Flaherty notes.

Earlier this year, UNH hit the number-two spot on the Sierra Club’s 2018 Cool Schools list.

“Every day I hear from our students, faculty and staff that sustainability is an important value. At UNH, we’re able to take this energy and work toward a more sustainable learning community,” Flaherty says. “This is no small feat and makes UNH a very special place.”
