For the ninth year in a row, Grand Valley State University has been named one of the country's most environmentally responsible colleges by The Princeton Review. The university is included in the 2018 edition of "The Princeton Review's Guide to 399 Green Colleges."

The guide profiles higher education institutions in the U.S. that demonstrate notable commitments to sustainability based on academic offerings and career preparation for students, as well as campus practices, initiatives and activities. Grand Valley has been included in the guidebook every year since the first issue was published in 2010.

This latest recognition reflects Grand Valley's commitment to sustainability. In September, Grand Valley was named one of the country's greenest universities by Sierra Club, the largest national grassroots environmental organization in the U.S. In August, Grand Valley was again named a top performer by the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education.
