3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I'm only a freshman, but most of the off campus housing is very gross and dirty. It would be so nice to have your own kitchen, but I think only juniors and seniors should do so.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I really like eating off campus, but honestly it is pricey considering we are located in Lake Forest.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I think our campus is strict in some aspects more than others. Public Safety is extremely nice and as long as you are respectful you'll be fine.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: I think considering how small of a school we have, the party scene is great. It was much better than I expected. There's almost always something happening Thursday-Saturday.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: It was a bit of a struggle honestly. My parents were unemployed for years on end and we have a lot of debt. It didn't seem like that took too much of that in to consideration. It has worked out, but still will have loans to pay off considering the large tuition.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: I do frequently eat the same thing in the caf, but that doesn't bother me. There's plenty of fresh food and healthy options as well.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I honestly don't think I would want to live off campus unless it was my senior year. Most people stay on campus all of their four years for two reasons: the atmosphere is great, as well as, location and it's cheaper.

4 College Junior

Administration: I think the campus strictness at my school is at a good level.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There is not much off campus housing in Lake Forest and if you find something it is usually too expensive for a college student.

5 College Junior

Academics: Being a business major on campus is great. There are many clubs to join that offer professional experience. The professors are great and the opportunities are endless.

4 College Junior

Academics: The academics are great. We have outstanding professors at the school that want you to succeed. I wish there was a larger selection of majors but otherwise I would change anything.

5 College Junior

Diversity: The diversity on campus is awesome. Students come from all over the world and I have learned so much about different cultures from fellow classmates and friends.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: The party scene isn't great. There aren't many places to go out in Lake Forest and there are rarely any big parties thrown on campus. There are a couple big ones that make up for it each year. Unfortunately, the biggest party, toga party, was cancelled by the school a couple years ago.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: A large amount of the dorms on campus do not have air conditioning. I highly recommend living in either Deerpath, Nollen, or Moore hall. These dorms are the only updated dorms on campus. Living on campus was definitely the right choice for me. The dorms are located very close to classes and the student center. This makes the social atmosphere great, Everyone is close together and easy to find. The housing process isn't the best but this coming year they will be using an online housing process that I am looking forward to and should make the process more smooth.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: The Greek life on campus is pretty minimal. There is no housing for any of the sororities or fraternities. They each have a lounge in the basement of a dorm. They each host fun events throughout the year but I don't think they have a huge effect on the social scene.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: So far I have had a good experience with the financial aid process at Lake Forest College. I suggest starting/applying early.

3 College Junior

Local Area: Lake Forest is a wealthy area. There is not a lot offered to college students in the area so most students go to Chicago to find attractions and activities to take part in.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Security cameras should be put into dorms for theft

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The price of living in Lake Forest is extremely high.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: This school gives fantastic financial aid. They met my financial need.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: The Computer Science major is not all that, but they have a good Business department.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: For a small school I guess you can say it is not too bad.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Some of the dorm on the campus are a little old, but the campus itself is beautiful.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: The great thing is that Lake Forest College is only a hour away on the train from the City of Chicago.

Athletics: As a small D3 school, there is not much fan support to begin with. We need to discover our school spirit.
