If you really want to learn, then you should consider Lake Forest College. Its small class sizes enables for the students to easily establish a relationship with the professor. When one’s stuck, they could easily talk to the professor because (1) they usually know each students’ situation and (2) since they devote themselves in teaching in small classes, they want students to be involved and come up to them. When you talk to them, you can expect them to be caring and grateful for you to come. Before, I was afraid to talk with my teachers. Now, I am...

    Lake Forest encourages students to learn, offering many opportunities to those who attend. They make a great deal of effort to make students feel at home with both their facilities and their staff. If you put in the effort, LFC will pay you back 10-fold.

    I came to Lake Forest College hoping to find a small, tight-knit community. I wanted to be someone and find myself. Instead of finding a school, I found a home.

    While, it claims to be closes to downtown Chicago, it for me anyway is not close enough, by train its an hour away. On campus there isn't that much to do, the school mainly focuses on academics. Also this school really feels for like a high school then a college, because people here are very cliquey.

    The small school accounts for a very strong academic basis with small class sizes and one-on-one attention from professors. It is really nice to be able to walk to class and know almost everyone you walk past. There is a good sense of community at this school.

    The academics here are amazing and the small class sizes instill an extremely stimulating learning environment. It is a beautiful campus, however is very small. If you are looking for a small, liberal arts college, this is the right school for you.

    Lake Forest is a quirky, international, close-knit liberal arts school that's a Metra ride away from the city of Chicago (which needs no introduction). The coursework is difficult, but professors treat students individually and encourage experiential learning. People here come from literally all over the world, and our campus is both historic and beautiful.

    Tucked away about 35 miles north of Chicago, Lake Forest offers the small school atmosphere while still providing access to the buzzing city atmosphere of Chicago. Students have the unique opportunity to work with professors in small class sizes, which can ensure a better understanding of the material. Financial aid is abundant and easy to come by at this college.
