The liberal arts advantage
Our students don't just come to college to get a degree. They're here because they believe in taking part in the grand project of building a better world. Equipped with a liberal arts education, our graduates carry what they learn at Lake Forest College for the rest of their lives.
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. The liberal arts curriculum helps students develop a strong sense of imagination that leads to innovative problem solving.
Because students can explore each of their interests in exciting classes and through experiential learning, they are able to make the most of their time in college. This leads to rewarding careers, a strong foundation of knowledge to help them navigate the world beyond our gates, and the know-how to create and effect change.
