Prospective students start college search at Lake Forest

The College’s first open house of the summer brought nearly 40 prospective students and their families to campus for an afternoon designed especially for high school and transfer students.

The Monday event drew Future Forester candidates from across Illinois and a number of other states, including Missouri, Wisconsin, Ohio, Iowa, and Massachusetts. The group had the opportunity to spend time with faculty from 15 departments during their afternoon visit, while faculty and staff met with the families when they arrived and at the end of the day. 

“From an admissions standpoint, it was great to offer prospective students and their families what, for many, was their first college visit,” said Vice President for Enrollment Chris Ellertson. 

Parents reported feeling informed about Lake Forest College and said the visit started their students thinking about what they want in a college.

The next open house is scheduled for Friday, August 5. Click here to register.
