If you have ever stepped foot on the University of North Texas’ campus, then you have seen the many efforts by the university to reduce its ecological footprint by reusing and recycling materials and building new LEED-certified buildings¬†throughout campus. These efforts are being noticed nationally when eCollegeFinder released their Greenest College Campuses in Each State list.

The University of North Texas ranked first in the state of Texas and eighth nationally. When grading colleges, eCollegeFinder gave North Texas a College Prowler Green Rating of 9.52/10. Other major universities given the honor include the University of Oregon (9.67/10) and the University of Colorado-Boulder (9.8/10).

Founded in 2004, eCollegeFinder represents over 120 accredited online colleges and universities and is dedicated to inspiring and informing college students with comprehensive online tools and information.
