Celebrating Forester diversity
Students had many opportunities to gain a richer understanding of the College’s diversity during the 2017 Global Fest celebration, held September 15–19.
Global Fest is a community-wide program that celebrates the many cultures represented on the Lake Forest College campus. During the annual event, the College comes together to explore, learn, and enjoy what it means to be part of the world community and the 72 countries represented in the current student-body.
Global Fest kicked off with a fun—and tasty—cookie decorating event on Friday followed by Saturday’s Intercultural Gala—a highlight of the annual celebration, where traditional dress, international music, and food creates a perfect celebration of the multiculturalism on campus. Dance Around the World capped off the programs events on Monday in Nollen Hall.
