Student Symposium

The Lake Forest College Student Symposium, now in its 17th year, takes place on Tuesday, April 8, 2014. The symposium brings all the members of our community together for a riveting day of scholarly and creative presentations, exhibits, debates, performances, demonstrations, and posters. Take a day to think and talk about a wide array of fascinating topics.

In 2007, the Student Symposium was designated as the Steven Galovich Memorial Student Symposium.

The Student Symposium shows off our students’ diverse achievements inside and outside the classroom. Regular classes are canceled on the day of the Symposium so that faculty, staff, and students can participate in the events - members of the North Shore and Lake County communities are welcomed to campus to join us in this celebration of student scholarship and intellectual engagement.

In 2007, the Student Symposium was designated as the Steven Galovich Memorial Student Symposium in memory of Steven Galovich, past Provost and Dean of Faculty at Lake Forest, who was instrumental in starting the Student Symposium in 1998. The 16th Annual Steven Galovich Memorial Student Symposium was jam-packed with interesting presentations, poster sessions, demonstrations, and performances.
