About Lake Forest College

Lake Forest College has everything a superb liberal arts education requires, with the added value of Chicago nearby. Lake Forest offers students a rare combination: an exceptionally beautiful, residential campus where students are challenged by a rigorous curriculum and outstanding faculty, and the resources of one of the world's leading cities just 30 miles away, where they step outside the classroom to enhance learning in powerful ways.
