Princeton Review—"Guide to 365 Green Colleges" and Princeton Review—2019 Best Regional Colleges

Lebanon Valley College has been featured as one of the top environmentally sustainable colleges in the country in the Princeton Review’s 2017 “Guide to 365 Green Colleges.” The Princeton Review chose the schools for this seventh annual edition of its "green guide" based on data from the company's 20162017 survey of hundreds of four-year colleges concerning the schools' commitments to the environment and sustainability. 

For the 16th consecutive year, Lebanon Valley College was named a “Best Regional College” by The Princeton Review. The rankings are based on surveys of more than 100,000 at the colleges in the Review in 2017–2018 and/or the previous two school years. The survey asks students 80 questions about their school’s academics, administration, student body, and themselves. The ranking methodology uses a five-point Likert scale to convert qualitative student assessments into quantitative data for school-to-school comparisons.
