Chicago Information Session

Foresters in the Loop:
A Chicago Information Session

Join us at our home away from home to learn all about life as a Forester and meet with our Chicago admissions counselors.

The Flats
Sunday, October 1
1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
829 S. Wabash, Chicago, IL 60605’


What can I expect?:
This information session is a great opportunity for students and families from the Chicago area to receive a crash course on Lake Forest College. We’re bringing our Chicago admissions counselors to our Loop campus to give you a special look into life at the College. Topics to be discussed include:

  • Life in Lake Forest and the College’s proximity and access to Chicago
  • Our vast academic and undergraduate research offerings
  • Co-curricular activities and athletic opportunities
  • Career preparation and job placement
  • Admissions and Financial Aid process

Anything else?
Of course! Our counselors are offering optional admissions interviews before and after the presentation. Keep in mind, we highly encourage students to interview with an admissions counselor during the application process. This gives students an opportunity to share who they are beyond statistics and test scores, ultimately aiding counselors in the holistic review of an application.

There will also be an optional tour of the residence halls at The Flats.
*Note: if you participate in an interview and/or tour of the residence halls you can expect to be with us past 2:30 p.m.

You have a Loop campus?
Yes! Through our partnership with neighboring universities, our Foresters participate in the “Lake Forest College In The Loop” program, a semester-long program where students complete an internship and take courses in downtown Chicago, all while living full-time at The Flats. Following our information session we will also be offering tours of the rooms that our students’ who participate in the program call home.

Beverages and light appetizers will be provided. We look forward to seeing you!
