Welcome to Lake Forest

Lake Forest College is a community of 1,400 students from over 40 different states and 65 different countries a mere 30 miles from the center of Chicago. We are active learners who go beyond the classroom experience and recognize engaged learning that may take the form of one-on-one research with faculty, study in a foreign country, an internship in a Fortune 500 Company, or independent study.

We have high academic expectations of our prospective students, and we seek out those individuals who jump into life with both feet and want to actively participate in their education. We look for future senators, entrepreneurs, conservationists, doctors, scientists, journalists, philosophers, athletes, and artists.

We hope you investigate us a bit deeper. Click on the tabs above for some brief information about the College or click here to view our full website.
