Allie Urbanik ’13, University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine  

Lake Forest College has given me confidence in science coursework and the ability to be an independent learner. These skills have proved to be invaulable in my experiences in veterinary school. The concepts that I’ve learned, and the interpersonal skills that I’ve made at Lake Forest College have given me the ability to be a leader both in and out of the classroom.

Alex on a mission trip in Haiti, ” Lake Forest College has helped me mature and grow in ways that only a liberal arts college can provide. An all encompassing education is critical in becoming a knowledgable and compassionate health care provider. My experience at Lake Forest College has opened my mind to the needs of many and how I can impact others beneficially.”

Alli Chase ’11 Rush University College of Nursing

“If I could sum up Lake Forest College in one word it would be dedication. The dedication to education and to each individual student is unparalleled. Because of the support I had from my professors and advisors I was able to flourish to my absolute potential. Through Pre-Health Advising I was able to land a job at Advocate Condell’s Emergency Room where my love for nursing began. Through Lake Forest College’s affiliations I was accepted into a top 15 nursing program in the nation at Rush University. The tools and skills I learned at Lake Forest College have been essential in this next step in my education.”

“Lake Forest College helped me to develop leadership skills outside of the classroom, which I believe are important in any professional medical field. Also, I felt comfortable taking classes in completely different departments, which helped me to become a more well-rounded student. I couldn’t have asked for a better undergraduate experience.”
