Spectrum polled students and faculty on their favorite spots around campus and added a few of our own to create this list. You will recognize many places – showing that some things never change at the College.
Perhaps the most iconic spot at Lake Forest College are the iron gates that connect Blackstone and Harlan dormitories and also serve as an entrance to Middle Campus from Sheridan Road. Built in the early 20th century, the gates originally led south to the Lake Forest Academy campus (now South Campus) and east toward Ferry Hall, a preparatory school for women. The gates now represent a favorite photo opportunity for visitors and alumni who return to campus.
