Fall Admitted Students

Future Forester Day

Future Forester Day, open only to admitted students, is unlike any other visit to campus. It’s designed to give you an in-depth look into all aspects of life at Lake Forest College.

Whether you’re still deciding or want another look at the place you’ve already chosen to call home, we encourage admitted students and their families to join us for a day of hands-on interactions and information.

Monday, April 8

We welcome you and your family to visit campus and get a personalized experience based on your individual interests with your fellow future Foresters. 

Here’s a breakdown of the day:

Check in for Future Forester Day will begin at the Sports and Recreation Center (#35 on the Campus Map) at 8 a.m. Then your jam-packed day begins! We’ll kick off the fun with a welcome from our very own President Schutt, then students and families can expect to spend some time apart before reuniting for lunch in the Caf.

In the morning, students will experience:

  • A chance to hear from and ask questions of current students
  • A choose-your-own-adventure portion of the day that includes sitting on active classes, meeting with faculty in their offices, or going on one of six offered specialty tours
  •  An engaging and in-depth look at how we get students off campus and into Chicago or other parts of the world at our “World’s Fair”

Parents, families, and guests, while your student is exploring, you’ll be hearing from current students, attending optional student life, student support, and faculty panels, and joining them for the World’s Fair before lunch.

Our day wraps up with stories from Career Advancement Center staff, current students, and alumni about what life looks like after Lake Forest College, and a high-energy end of day Community Information and celebration. Make sure to stay for giveaways and treats! Our day will end around 3 p.m. 

Interested in getting an overnight experience? 

Limited space is available for our Future Forester Day Overnight, offered the Sunday before each Future Forester Day.
