The Gates Center offers fun, personal, and professional opportunities outside of the classroom that build life skills. Foresters have over 80 active student organizations, club sports, and intramural opportunities at Lake Forest College!
Co-curricular involvement provides important leadership experiences that give students the edge, both personally and professionally. Involvement opportunities include student organizations, fraternities and sororities, service opportunities, and leadership workshops! We highly encourage students to get involved!
Students can meet representatives from student organizations at the involvement fair at the beginning of every semester. We have a multitude of student organizations representing the interests of the student body, including cultural, faith, academic, performing, and special interests. There’s something for everyone!
Not sure where to start? Visit the Gates Center! We are happy to help students find ways to get involved on campus!
