Prescott College has been named one of the nation’s most environmentally responsible colleges. That’s according to the Princeton Review, which has included Prescott College in its Guide to Green Colleges. Princeton representatives say something that will ensure the school stays on the list next year is the announcement that it intends to source 100 percent of its annual electrical usage from renewable sources. The choice to make the change to green sources builds on previous climate action, as Prescott College was one of the first participants in the American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment, which is the higher education protocol for reducing institutional and global greenhouse emissions.
