Lake Forest College

Lake Forest College is one of the nation's most innovative liberal arts colleges. In addition to strong academic majors in the humanities, social and natural sciences, the College features inventive programs of study in communications, business, Asian Studies, Islamic World Studies, and still other contemporary areas.

Lake Forest offers a rigorous academic environment in a small class setting. Ninety-eight percent of professors hold a Ph.D. or equivalent, and many come from top graduate programs at universities like Harvard, Chicago, Northwestern MIT, Stanford, and the University of Pennsylvania. Their work is published in such top journals as Nature and supported by grants from the National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, and others.

The College's Center for Chicago Programs facilitates research and internships at Chicago institutions as well as frequent commutes to the city for work and fun. The Center also brings well-known Chicago experts and artists to campus for classroom discussions and lectures.

More than ninety student groups provide a host of extracurricular opportunities that develop leadership skills and enhance students' campus experience and post-college prospects. Lake Forest is a member of NCAA Division III Midwest Conference and competes in the Northern Collegiate Hockey Association.

We're surprisingly affordable. Princeton Review has consistently ranked Lake Forest among the nation's top 13 colleges and universities in student satisfaction with financial aid. And given our small class sizes and eminent professors, we're an outstanding value.

Lake Forest students graduate with a competitive edge on great jobs, top graduate programs, and more.
