Campus Activities



Listening to music, hanging out with friends.

Why did you choose to come to Lake Forest College?

Because it’s easier to make connections with your professors at a small liberal arts school! Plus, there is Chicago if you want to network with global experienced professionals!

Why did you want to be a First Connection Peer Mentor?

Because I made lots of friends when I was a mentee and as Peer mentor and I’m looking forward to helping first-year students to transition into college while having fun.

What academic advice do you have for our incoming First Connection mentees?

Always ask questions, you will have a great support system if you look for it.

What do you advocate for?

LGBTQ+ rights, Black Lives Matter, Global Warming Awareness.
