Review: Lake Forest College, founded in 1857, is a private liberal arts college in Lake Forest, Illinois. The college has 1,400 students representing 47 states and 72 countries. Due to its location 30 miles (48 km) north of Chicago and curricular emphasis on campus, the College is referred to as "Chicago's National Liberal Arts College." The College's current Chair of the Board of Trustees is financier Peter G. Schiff, a graduate of the class of 1974. The current President is Stephen D. Schutt, who joined the College in 2001 after serving as the Vice President and Chief of Staff at the University of Pennsylvania. In addition to strong academic majors in the humanities, social and natural sciences, Lake Forest features inventive programs of study in many contemporary areas, including Latin American studies, business, Asian studies, and Islamic world studies. High achieving students with a unique passion can apply to become Independent Scholars and design their own majors, culminating in a thesis or creative project. Lake Forest's accelerated programs in law, communication, nursing, engineering, and international relations offer highly motivated students a way to finish their degree in only three years, or to complete their bachelor's while enrolled in a graduate program at a partner university. There are many opportunities for hands-on experience at Lake Forest with extensive study abroad programs, internships in Chicago and the opportunity to conduct original research with a professor and possibly get published in academic journals, as many students have. Lake Forest professors' work has been published in journals and supported by grants from the National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, National Endowment for the Humanities, Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and many others. The College's Center for Chicago Programs facilitates research and internships at Chicago institutions as well as frequent commutes to the city for work and fun. The Center also brings well-known Chicagoans to campus for classroom discussions, public lectures and performances. More than ninety student groups provide a host of extracurricular opportunities that develop leadership skills and enhance students' campus experience and post-college prospects. Lake Forest is a member of NCAA Division III Midwest Conference and competes in the Northern Collegiate Hockey Association.
