Are you still finalizing your college decision?

1. Visit campus! 

Lake Forest College is closely monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Our top priority remains the health, safety, and well-being of our campus community and visitors. As a result, we will be unable to host visitors on campus until further notice. We are excited, however, to offer virtual campus tours and virtual visits tailored to your interests. We will consistently monitor the situation and provide updates as they become available. You can find the most up-to-date information at lakeforest.edu/coronavirus.

In addition to ensuring that you earn your $2,000 per year visit grant, experience a day in the life as a Forester—you’ll be happy you did!

2. Connect with your admissions counselor. The friendly faces in Patterson Lodge know you from the application process and are            happy to help answer your questions and connect you with other members of the campus community.                      

3. Contact the Office of Financial Aid with questions regarding merit scholarships, need-based aid, or other concerns related to cost of          attendance.

4. Chat with a current student. Hear about life at Lake Forest College from those who know it best. Our current students are hosting virtual Zoom chats where you can get all of your questions answered and learn more about your future home.

5. Chat with faculty and alumni. Learn even more about Lake Forest by chatting with professors in various departments across campus as well as alumni.

Again, congratulations on your admission! #FutureForester
