Orange, black... and green? OSU lands on elite list of eco schools

CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) - Oregon State University has been named one of the greenest universities in the nation.

OSU announced Thursday that it was the only university in Oregon to be named to the Princeton Review's 2012 Green Rating Honor Roll.

OSU was one of 16 universities nationwide to get the highest score possible on the review's rating for commitment to sustainability and environmental responsibility.

The university noted that last month, it became the second-largest purchaser of green power of any university in the country.
