Lake Forest College is located on a beautiful 107-acre residential campus located just 30 miles north of the world-class city of Chicago.
This means easy access to abundant internship and research opportunities, tons of cultural and entertainment experiences, and networking opportunities with alumni and professionals in a wide array of fields.
Your professors will serve as your teachers and advisors—they are deeply committed to their students’ success. You will be part of an inclusive and tight-knit community, living and learning with classmates from nearly every state and more than 75 countries.
