Bringing Chicago to Campus

When students aren’t travelling from Lake Forest to the city, the College is bringing Chicago to its campus. 

Lake Forest College’s connections to Chicago make the campus a frequent stopping point for artists, musicians, industry leaders, political figures, and academics. 

Students have the opportunity to talk sports management with Chicago Bears staff, learn “Freakonomics” from University of Chicago economist and best-selling author Steven Levitt, and listen to live music from well-known Chicago blues musicians such as Billy Branch and the Sons of Blues and Carl Weathersby.

This is a just a small sampling of the unique Chicago experiences available on our Lake Forest campus.
