Augsburg College is officially a “Cool School,” according to the Sierra Club’s Sierra magazine.
The conservation group sent an 11-page questionnaire to 900 schools across the country. When forms were returned and rankings compiled, Augsburg was one of four Minnesota schools on the list, along with Macalester, St. Olaf, and St. Thomas.
Augsburg’s inclusion on the list is further proof that a college or university doesn’t have to have a wind turbine to be environmentally responsible.
Augsburg received a perfect score for how waste is handled on campus. The College ranked very high for administrative efforts, source of energy, food sustainability, and green academic offerings.
