COVID-19 Updates and Resources. The health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff is our top priority. Coronavirus Information


At Lake Forest College, the study of chemistry is like an apprenticeship: hands-on, research-laden, and faculty-driven.

All courses have labs where students use instruments to solve research problems. Using the newest technologies and techniques, students make new discoveries and push the limits on today’s important chemistry questions.

Lake Forest has an American Chemical Society (ACS) approved academic program and an award-winning chapter of the Student Affiliates of the American Chemical Society, better known as SAACS.

I don’t believe my career would have followed the same trajectory were it not for the education I received at Lake Forest College.
