Students in Chicago


The Second City is Our Second Campus 

At Lake Forest College, you don’t just read about the Caribbean Reef for a class assignment, but experience it first hand, getting a diver’s-eye view on a behind-the-scenes tour of the Shedd Aquarium. You don’t just study Grant Wood’s “American Gothic” on a projector slide, but see the paint strokes of the world-renowned masterpiece up close in person at the Art Institute of Chicago. Chicago’s possibilities for hands-on learning are endless.

And just for fun

In addition, student-led Chicago Ambassadors lead you on excursions down the Chicago River, improv shows at The Second City, Cubs’ games, and more, all with your fellow Foresters and all for free. And just for fun!
