Today is #ForesterDay. Foresters across the country come together to support and celebrate what it means to be a member of the Forester Family. Whether it's the small class sizes, your teammates, the professor who had your back, or even the beautiful campus, there is something about Lake Forest College that you LOVE. For one day only, you can directly support what makes you or someone you care about a Forester. Make a gift to support your favorite part about Lake Forest College and help us reach our goal! 

...But wait, there's more! Join us in these 15 cities to celebrate with other Foresters in your area! Click on your city for details, see who's coming, and to register.
