  • Paul Lacouture aka Cootch “posed” for this picture sometime between 1968 and 1971 as a member of Mike Dau’s football team. Teammate Steve Kingman (pictured in the middle of the group shown in the background) played for the Cincinnati Bengals and is likely the only Forester to ever play in the NFL. I think this is one of the all-time great sports photos at LFC:

L. and Sproat, John G.), However, that was the only stand alone lecture I witnessed receive an ovation - causing Professor Schulze to bolt from the classroom:

  • Lake Forest College provided us with continual opportunities to challenge ourselves, and to be challenged - in the classroom as well as on the ice and in the pool. We were, and still are, a part of a true community- made up of friends, faculty, coaches and family. Our experience allowed us to discover who we were and who we wanted to be:
