Student Life

Student Organizations

Foresters have over 80 active student organizations, club sports, and intramural opportunities at Lake Forest College. Involvement in campus life outside the classroom provides important, “real-world” experience that gives our students the edge, both personally and professionally. Learn more here

Check out all of our student organizations at the involvement fair at the beginning of every semester. Cultural organizations, fraternities, sororities, and performing/fine arts organizations are just a few examples! New students can see the variety of student organizations and activities they can choose from. There’s something for everyone!
