Admissions

The more you learn, the better you get at learning. And that’s what the top employers are looking for: the top learners.

From the moment you enroll at Lake Forest College, you’re assigned to an Academic and Career Advisor, whose job is to learn all about you—what you love doing, what you think you might be good at—and find ways to get to where you want to land after graduation.
