ORONO, Maine — The University of Maine in Orono is one of just 16 schools profiled for the Princeton Review’s “Green Honor Roll” for 2012.

The accolade came in the latest edition of “Princeton Review’s Guide to 322 Green Colleges,” which was released April 17. The guide recognizes higher education institutions that “demonstrate notable commitment to sustainability in their academic offerings, campus infrastructure, activities and career preparation,” according to university press release.

UMaine also made the list in 2010 and 2011.

“The University of Maine has long recognized its leadership role in promoting and actively pursuing environmental stewardship,” UMaine president Paul Ferguson said Wednesday. “At UMaine, going green is not just a philosophy, but a way of life.”
