Pratt Named One of The Country’s Top Green Colleges

A sign in front of the Juliana Curran Terian Design Center during Green Week 2010For the second year in a row, the prestigious Princeton Review, an education service that helps students select and apply to colleges, has named Pratt in its Guide to 311 Green Colleges (2011 edition). To compile the 311 colleges profiled in the Guide, The Princeton Review invited 2,000 schools to take part in their survey. Pratt was recognized by the publication for the sustainability-focused education it provides its students and for its commitment to the greening of its campus buildings and grounds.

Pratt is one of only two art colleges to be listed in the Guide. (The other is California College of the Arts.) Pratt’s inclusion reinforces the Institute's reputation as an exemplary institution of higher education committed to sustainability. The Guide cited Pratt’s urban campus as providing “a unique challenge for putting green design into practice…[a challenge] to which Pratt is rising admirably.”
