Overnight Program

Click here to register today!


Join us the Sunday before one of our admitted student Future Forester Days for a special overnight experience. We will cover half of your (the student’s) cost of travel, up to $200. 

Below are the steps that you and your family will need to take to join us on campus for this program:

1. Once you’ve decided which program is best for you, book any travel arrangements. You’re going to need that information for the registration form.

  • If flying, students are strongly encouraged to arrive at O’Hare International Airport between 12 p.m. and 3 p.m.  A shuttle and staff member will be there to pick up students. Please plan your return flight for 6 p.m. or later Monday evening. We will provide return shuttles as well.
  • If driving, please plan on arriving at Lake Forest College between 3:30 and 4:30 p.m.
  • If traveling by bus or train into Chicago, please choose an arrival time of around 12-1 p.m.

2. Fill out the registration form for your preferred date (linked above). Don’t forget to upload a receipt of your travel tickets! Don’t wait to register - each program will be limited to 30 registrants.

3. Register next for Future Forester Day - this will make sure you’re set for both the Sunday and Monday portions of the weekend. 

4. Keep an eye on your email, and get excited! We’ll be in touch with more information as your overnight event approaches.

What should I bring?

There are few things we recommend that you bring with you to make this trip as enjoyable as possible!

  • Snow/rain gear
  • Pillow/Sleeping bag/blanket: you may be on a futon, cot, or on a dorm room floor. Bring whatever you need to feel comfortable!
  • Toiletries 
  • Comfortable clothing*

*Please note that the weather could either be 50° and sunny, or 4° and a blizzard. Take a look at the weather and come prepared for both!

Can my parent(s)/family come?

Parent(s) and family members are welcome to explore the College and town of Lake Forest on Sunday! We will have special programming for family members during the Future Forester Day on Monday. Please note that we will not be able to subsidize any cost of travel and cannot provide accommodations for family members. Recommended area hotels can be found here.
