Tech earned a 99 out of 99, one of 21 schools to earn a perfect score out of 806 surveyed. In its evaluation of the Institute’s many green initiatives highlighted in the list, The Princeton Review said, “Georgia Tech's recycling programs, alternative transportation programs, energy-efficient composting dining halls and green buildings are models for other universities to follow.”

The Green Buzz portal was called out specifically for showing “students, staff and faculty what they can do to create a more environmentally friendly campus.” The North Avenue Apartments’ LEED Gold certification last year and other past Institute sustainability awards also contributed to this ranking.
