been recognized as one of the most environmentally responsible colleges in the U.S.
and Canada by The Princeton Review and included in the 2013 edition of The Princeton Review’s Guide to 322 Green

universities, The Princeton Review recognized Montclair State for its commitment
to sustainability highlighting, among others, the University’s PSEG Institute
for Sustainability Studies, the Passaic River Institute and the New Jersey
School of Conservation; the LEED-certified University Hall and the other
buildings on campus that are undergoing certification; the campus-wide
recycling program; mandatory use of green housekeeping products; and the solar
fields that have been built on campus and at the School of Conservation.
“We are truly pleased to recommend Montclair State
University along with all of the fine schools in
this book to the many students seeking colleges that practice and promote
environmentally responsible choices and practices,” said Robert Franek, senior vice

significant interest among college applicants in attending “green” colleges.

of Earth Day, The Princeton Review’s

it was first published in 2009.
