Lake Forest College doesn’t require students to choose practicality over passion. We know that embracing both makes for well-rounded graduates and the strongest job candidates.
At Lake Forest College, we work together to make it happen. Our diverse students make connections to the world around them in and beyond our gates. Our thriving academic community and superb faculty make education engaging, pragmatic, and forward-thinking. Our proximity to Chicago, the third-largest city in the US, provides students access to rich cultural experiences and experiential learning in all fields, earning us consistent rankings for internship opportunities.
We take a pragmatic approach that merges the nourishing foundations of a liberal arts education with practical experience through internships, research, study abroad opportunities, and the Lake Forest In The Loop program.
Our graduates use their Lake Forest College experiences to make a career they love: 98 percent have jobs, enter graduate school, or pursue other avenues of success within six months of graduation.
