BestColleges.com recently released a 2015 list of Greenest Colleges, where Oregon State was ranked #10! Our campus was listed among schools such as Stanford, Colorado State, and even our fellow Pac-12 school, Arizona State.
The ranking was based on several criteria, including our already existing STARS rating. Our STARS rating is a reflection of OSU’s excellence in academics, engagement, operations, planning & administration, & innovation.
In the list, Oregon State is praised for its nationally recognized programs in marine science, forestry, conservation biology, and more. Our cutbacks on energy usage and Campuses Take Charge program also helped us to gain such an awesome ranking!
We’re so excited to add another ranking to our list of sustainability recognitions!
