In The Loop

The Lake Forest College In The Loop program provides students with an opportunity to live, work, and learn in the city.

Students reside at Hostelling International, a large and well-appointed hostel located in the Chicago Loop and take both a full semester of courses through Lake Forest College and partnering institutions, as well as complete internships for credit as part of their academic program.

As a result, students learn about various distinctive aspects of Chicago, including the city’s history, economy, politics, architecture, art and relationship to the natural environment.
