    it is very easy to get involved around campus in all the clubs and activities that are offered. not only will they look good on a resume, but they are genuinely such fun times as well. also, downtown lake forest is located about ten minutes away from campus and so is the beach.

    Being a part of the athletics at LFC, we always wanted to go and support other teams whether we were in season or not. I always found the sporting events to be very fun. Before the weather gets cold, the school puts up an outdoor movie style night in the quad where they play movies on a large screen for a good amount of people to view. Theres usually an event on Fridays but students usually attend parties or group hangouts when they can. The parties are not very big just because of the size of the school and limited space.

    There is almost always something going on around campus that's college sponsored, but outside of that it's a very "make your own fun" kind of town. There are a host of bars in Lake Forest itself, but not a huge (or even middle sized) selection.

    Go down to the lake! Take a jog, go swimming, or simply just enjoy the weather and beautiful view! Attend events ran by student organizations and have a blast!

    The student group SPARK throws really cool events open to students every week. Some of the coolest things I've been to have been a mentalist, a comedian, a magician, and dueling pianos, but there's been a load of other things, like a Build a Bear type thing and an exotic petting zoo. There's also a school-sponsored All Campus Party (ACP) every other week. The train station is a ten minute walk: my favorite place is go is Evanston, which is a 20-30 minute ride, and downtown Chicago is only an hour away.

    Most Saturdays the student center hosts a dance called ACP. Its ok, I guess it depends on the person. Don't miss anything with the word fest in it, like global fest, and winter fest. The school also has a few Greek life organizations look into them.

    Since the school is located in the middle of a suburb, there is not much to do. In town there are several shop but are pricy for college students. When it is nice enough, some students go to the beach which is about a 10-15 minutes walk from campus. On campus, there is always something going at night for the students. There is a shuttle bus that takes students to other shopping centers.

    I personally like the party scene for the most part because I like knowing the people I am partying with, but I feel like most people would prefer the party scene at a bigger school. It is about a mile walk to the beach; there are many ravines to adventure through so if you are into nature there is plenty to keep you busy. Lake Forest is a beautiful town the huge, beautiful houses. There is a mall about 10-15 minutes from campus.
