- The University of Connecticut and Yale University were ranked among the top 10 greenest schools in the country by a Sierra magazine survey released Tuesday, ranking fifth and eighth respectively and coming in ahead of Cornell (15), Harvard (18), and UC-Berkeley (20).
- The magazine's lifestyle editor, Avital Andrews, said UConn ranked highly due to its recycling program and new composting facility, and that Yale's spot was secured by its commitment to carbon emission reduction and 14 highly energy-efficient buildings.
- Only California had a larger presence than Connecticut in the top 10, with the rundown (from first to tenth) being as follows: UC-Davis, Georgia Tech, Stanford, U. of Washington-Seattle, UConn, U. of New Hampshire, Duke, Yale, UC-Irvine and Appalachian State.
