Our proximity to Chicago gives our students nearly boundless internship options.

Students at Lake Forest College may do internships for-credit, which the are specifically linked to their area of study, and not-for-credit. Both academic year and summer internships are generally available. Current students can find available internships listed in the online job/internship database available through the Career Advancement Center. Opportunities for service-based internships can also be found through the Grace Groner Foundation
