Forester Elevate Program for Local Businesses

The Lake Forest College Forester Elevate Program is designed to bring Lake Forest College, the City of Lake Forest, and surrounding local businesses together.

What is the Forester Elevate Program? 

Forester Elevate is a free discount program that offers independent businesses that are not affiliated with Lake Forest College the opportunity to provide and promote deals and discounts to Forester students, faculty/staff, alumni, and parents. Examples of discounts could include a percentage off items, BOGO free, complimentary add-ons to purchases or samples, and items named after Lake Forest College.

What are the benefits? 

Increase your customer base and exposure by interacting with our population of over 5,000 students, faculty/staff, alumni, and parents on campus during Lake Forest College’s upcoming events this fall:

  • Move-In Week: August 16-21, 2024
  • Family Weekend: September 19-21, 2024
  • Homecoming: October 3-5, 2024

Our goal is to enhance and elevate experiences for Forester students, faculty/staff, alumni, and parents attending premier events at the College. We’ll promote your business through the Forester Elevate Program at upcoming Lake Forest College special events this fall.

We’ll list your business for free on the Forester Elevate Discounts webpage and include details about your discount plus a link to your website.

You’ll receive a complimentary window placard to publicize your participation in the program.
