Lake Forest College Homecoming
Lake Forest College welcomes the new Brown Hall to campus!
A wonderful project has just been completed on the Lake Forest College campus. The dramatic renovation and expansion of historic Young Hall – which many of you knew as College Hall – was completed in time for the 2021 fall semester. Thanks to a remarkably generous lead gift from College Trustee William G. Brown and his wife Solange, the building is being renamed Brown Hall.
