Deer Outside Morgan Hall

Morgan and Deerfield halls made history in 2010 as the first structures on the Berry campus to earn LEED accreditation for green building practices.

The Princeton Review once again has ranked Berry among the nation’s most environmentally responsible colleges. This is the fourth year in a row Berry has made the list, produced in collaboration with the Center for Green Schools at the U.S. Green Building Council.

The Princeton Review’s Guide to 332 Green Colleges: 2014 Edition singles out 330 schools in the U.S. and two in Canada that demonstrate exemplary commitments to sustainability in their academics, campus infrastructure, activities and career preparation.

“Being named to Princeton Review’s Guide to Green Colleges for the fourth year in a row is a testament that Berry’s commitment to sustainability is being recognized on a national level,” said Director of Sustainability Eddie Elsberry.

The publication is available for free download. Berry’s is profiled on page 31.
