At Lake Forest, any student who wants an internship can get one. Motivated students could complete up to three internship experiences by the time they graduate.

The internship supervisors and professionals at the Career Advancement Center help students find internships in their area of interest. Our proximity to Chicago gives our students lots of internship options in business, finance, communications, social service, government, arts, and entertainment, and much more.

Students at Lake Forest College may do internships for credit, which the are linked to their area of study, as well as not for credit, during the school year or in summer.
