Making A Difference Colleges

Some students spend their collegiate career trying to make a difference in the world. We applaud them!

Inside College recently named 63 colleges that make a difference in the world, from Miriam Weinstein's book Making A Difference Colleges. According to Weinstein's website, she has been "researching and directing thousands of committed young people to truly green colleges since 1992." Now THAT, my friends, is expertise.

Colleges that make a difference are large and small, public and private. There is a heavy concentration of schools in traditionally green havens like Oregon, Vermont and Washington, but there are a ton of other schools throughout the country.

We've got the full list in alphabetical order.

What do you think? Any surprises?
