Welcome Foresters!

This campaign ended on September 14, 2019, but you can still make a gift to Lake Forest College by clicking here!

The Welcome Foresters! campaign is a tradition at Lake Forest College, where all Lake Forest College families come together at the beginning of each year to celebrate and welcome new students to campus through their generosity.

This year, our goal is to have 491 gifts in honor of 491 new students, including your own, by the first day of classes. Supporting has it's perks - Lake Forest ID holder for $25, ID holder/lanyard for $50, laundry bag for $150, a pair of Yeti-style mugs for $250.

You can pick up your items at the Parents Council table at the One Stop Shop on Friday, August 23 from 10:30-3:30 or have them mailed to your student's campus mailbox (so they can be decked out for orientation and the first day of classes).
