Sierra Magazine named Lawrence University, the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh and UW-Green Bay among the country's most environmentally green colleges in its seventh annual "cool school" rankings released in the September/October edition of the publication.

Lawrence, located in Appleton, was ranked 52nd nationally in the magazine's list of 162 institutions, one of only five Wisconsin colleges included on the 2013 list. The other colleges were UWO, 29th; UW-Stevens Point, 56th; UWGB, 96th and Northland College, 105th.

The rankings are based on points awarded in 11 categories ranging from energy supply and waste management to food and transportation. Points per category varied from 34 (purchasing) to 249 (energy) with a total maximum score of 1,000.
