My advice to incoming students is that even though Lake Forest College is a smaller school, I recommend treating it like a big school.  Make an effort to meet as many people as possible, communicate with your professors and staff, don’t just sit in your room.  There’s enough time for that at the end of the semester during finals.

I am involved in Greek life, Interfraternity Council, Athletic Council and Men’s Tennis.
