Five local universities have made The Princeton Review's latest list of 311 Green Colleges.
In Worcester, Clark University, Holy Cross, Worcester Polytechnic Institute and Worcester State University made the list. Framingham State University also joined the Central Massachusetts contingent in the directory.
The Princeton Review, which is based in Framingham, partnered with the U.S. Green Building Council to develop the green guide to colleges for the second year in a row.
The 311 schools were selected based on "green rating" scores. Schools that scored in the 80th percentile or above were included in the list, which was not ranked.
