Future Forester Day
Click on the date above you’d like to attend
Join us the Sunday before one of our Future Forester Days for a special overnight experience that includes a venture into Chicago complete with deep dish pizza, a look at our downtown residential facility, and more! Overnight programs are open to admitted students only. Parents and families, we hope you’ll join us for Future Forester Day on Monday!
Below are steps that you 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 should arrive at O’Hare International Airport between noon and 2 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
1 and 2 p.m.
- If traveling by bus or train into Chicago, please choose an arrival time between noon and 2 p.m.
2. Fill out the registration form for your preferred date (linked above). Don’t wait to register—each program will be limited to 35 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.
