What Students Are Saying

3.89 Average Rating
Diversity is a major factor here at LFC. Your professors will challenge you as well as take an interest in you due to the size of the college. Close-knit community that serves as a springboard for a wide variety of futures.

Lake Forest College is so far the harborer of a fantastic learning environment. The administration pushes their students to becoming better writers with skills in reading comprehension and organization in all of the available majors. The small class size offers the opportunity for a first name basis and a personal and comfortable learning experience.
