The Lake Forest College Student Symposium celebrates its 20th year in 2017. The symposium brings all the members of our community together for a riveting day of scholarly and creative presentations, exhibits, debates, performances, demonstrations, and posters. Take a day to think and talk about a wide array of fascinating topics.

The Student Symposium shows off our students’ diverse achievements inside and outside the classroom. Regular classes are canceled on the day of the Symposium so that faculty, staff, and students can participate in the events - members of the North Shore and Lake County communities are welcomed to campus to join us in this celebration of student scholarship and intellectual engagement.

Interested in presenting your project?

Students can participate in Symposium as a featured presenter. Faculty nominate their best and brightest students to present starting in November. Nominations are due by December 16. The Symposium Committee reviews the nominations and those selected are announced in March.
