The Princeton Review released its Green Honor Roll, which recognizes schools that received a green rating of 99, just in time for Earth Day.

The publication’s fifth annual green ratings measured the environmental friendliness of 806 institutions nationwide on a scale of 60 to 99. Vanderbilt was one of only 21 universities to receive the highest possible score of 99.

According to the Review, the rating measures “a school’s performance as an environmentally aware and responsible institution” and primarily considers sustainable campus living, academic coursework in sustainability and sustainable school policies to determine the score.
