Welcome, new students!

This semester Lake Forest College welcomes 58 new students who have broad interests and experiences.

The new Foresters include 29 transfer students—17 from community colleges and 12 from four-year colleges. The four-year institutions represented include Knox College, Grinnell College, Baylor University, the University of Illinois at Chicago, University of South Carolina, Santa Clara University, Dean College, Augustana College, Grand Canyon University, Northern Arizona University, and Berklee College of Music.

The majority of new students hail from Illinois, but Colorado and Minnesota are also represented, as well as one international transfer student from China. 

This athletic group includes Division I and Division II transfer athletes who will participate in football, men’s basketball, and softball.

This is also a musically talented group, with students planning to participate in choir, orchestra, and various music ensembles. 

Above all, volunteer work is important to these newest Foresters. They have spent time volunteering abroad, canvassing for politicians, tutoring fellow students, and caring for our environment.

Christina Gimondo ’20, a Phi Theta Kappa student from the College of Lake County (CLC), founded the “Love the Skin You’re In” event at CLC, which promotes depression awareness among women through education and self-esteem through mentorship.

Additionally, there is a new student who has worked on ships, sailed all over the world, and participated in pirate safety training. 

Lake Forest welcomes the newest additions to the Forester family and their future contributions to the College.
