Welcome, new students!

This semester Lake Forest College welcomes 30 new students who have broad interests and experiences.

The new Foresters include 28 transfer students—14 from community colleges, 14 from four-year colleges—and two first-year students.

Community colleges represented include College of Lake County, McHenry County College, Richard J. Daley College, Oakton Community College, William Rainey Harper College, and Tacoma Community College.

Four-year institutions represented include Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, Creighton University, University of Illinois, University of Wisconsin, Miami University, University of Michigan, Susquehanna University, Hampton University, Goucher College, St. Xavier University, University of Dayton, Skidmore College, and the University of Washington.

The majority of new students hail from Illinois—in fact, 20 will commute to campus—but Indiana and Missouri are also represented.

Their group’s intended majors span the College’s liberal arts offering and include education, biology, business, chemistry, communications, computer science, English, environmental studies, finance, international relations, neuroscience, philosophy, psychology, sociology and anthropology, and Spanish.  

When not in the classroom, the new students intend to pursue a number of extracurricular activities including music, art, Greek life, and intramural sports. Above all, volunteer work and community service is important to these newest Foresters. 

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