lake forest college is an intensive, liberal arts school. with a diverse and broad range of studies and activities, students are able to explore many aspects. thus, this college is bound to encourage and support a student's future career.
Chelsey from CHICAGO, IL
Lake Forest College is a fairly academically rigorous college with small class sizes and opportunities available for individual study and focus. Campus life is fun, but there are few opportunities in Lake Forest. Fortunately, Chicago and Evanston are nearby, and the Center for Chicago Programs offers plenty of student resources.
Wonderful Liberal Arts College
