Open House Programs for High School and Transfer Students
Our Open House Programs will resume in the summer of 2016; please check back here for registration starting in April. In the meantime, we would love to host you for a personal visit to campus.
What does the visit look like?
Welcome Reception and Registration
Starting at the Mohr Student Center (#22 on the map), guests are greeted by members of the admissions staff, current students, and College alumni. Enjoy light refreshments, pick up your welcome packet, and learn more about the College from our Forester Family.
Getting Started: Lake Forest College Admissions

Lake Forest College provides an exceptional education and does so in ways that are distinctive. Experience firsthand the classroom environment at Lake Forest, as faculty members from several academic disciplines teach an introductory class.
