4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: A small school with dedicated professors.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My first year at LFC was great! I loved it a lot, ups and downs and all. I wish there was more to do both on and around campus, but the town is small and expensive so I know that won't change. I love the small school atmosphere. The teachers were great, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the food wasn't too bad. I'm halfway through the summer and I'm ready to go back.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The coaches helped me get accustomed to college.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Rigorous libarts with Chicago's global connections

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: In town there are a lot of restaurants, however, since it is a rich neighborhood, the prices are kind of high.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The public safety officers are constantly on patrol and are very approachable.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: I recieved a lot of fincnial aid from the people I have talked to. They have a whole building dedicated to admissions and financial aid.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The comunity that the college is in is very friendly and clean. There are a lot off ammenities close by including restaurants and stores--even a metra station to take frequent field trips to the city. Some of the dorms are small, but it doesn't bother that me that much. Fifteen minutes away there is a shopping center and a free shuttle bus provided by the school takes students everyday.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It's expensive, and I wouldn't pay for it. Living on campus is more fun. There's not much variety also.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Eating out in Lake Forest is kind of dull. Thee restaurants don't vary in cuisine (burgers, sandwiches, pizza, etc). You could pay for a pricier meal. You get better variety when you go down to Evanston.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: It's pretty decent for a small school. I've yet to go to an amazing party, but you have something to do every weekend if that's what you're looking for.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Pubsafe is nice. It's best to stay on their good side, like anyone you meet. It seems like some officers have their favorites and aren't going to punish them. There's a couple officers that need to back down sometimes and not attack/accuse students when they're answering the questions pubsafe asks with answers they don't want. Other than that, they're all right.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I've received a lot of financial aid. It's been a great help! It would be really helpful if the college put up more information about costs, instead of the base cost.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is okay. There's a lot of variety yet not a lot of variety at the same time.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I wouldn't want to live off-campus. The small campus makes it easy to hang out with friend from different parts of campus. And it's cheaper than renting an apartment in town.

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.
