Got a student at home trying to make the big choice of a college to attend? Are schools’ commitments to sustainability a part of his/her criteria for choosing one?

Moreover, of that cohort, 24 percent said such information would ‘very much’ impact their decision to apply to or attend the school.”
But where do you find this information?
