Student Loan Rates Double After Congress Fails To Agree On Legislation

How green is your college or University? The Sierra Club’s magazine “Sierra” just released its ranking of US schools based on metrics including energy efficiency, total energy consumption, sustainability-related curriculum and many more.

“By showing such strong leadership on so many fronts – from energy use and transportation to the courses they offer – the best of these schools are pointing the way for other institutions,” said Bob Sipchen, Sierra magazine’s editor-in-chief.

Sierra magazine’s top 10 schools of 2013 are:

1. University of Connecticut (Storrs, CT)
2. Dickinson College (Carlisle, PA)
3. University of California, Irvine (Irvine, CA)
