Alumni discuss how their time at the College has helped prepare them for their current and future career paths.
A community that creates confidence
"My time at Lake Forest has greatly helped me to be the individual I am today and that has to do a lot with the community that Lake Forest fosters. "It's such a close-knit and intimate community. It's as if you know that you have this safety blanket, or this base, from which you can go and explore things, try new things, and step out of your comfort zone. All the while knowing very well that you have a whole host of people rooting for you and are here on the off chance you do fail or things don't work out. I would definitely say that it's the support and unconditional love that has given me the courage and confidence I have today."
