After a quick breakfast on campus with Amy Sherman, VMS class of 2013, I was offered a tour by another Lake Forest student. While I was happily surprised to see a very diverse student population, I wasn’t surprised to hear many anecdotes of supportive faculty and their passion for teaching undergraduate students. Whether it be Parkinson’s research in the neuroscience department or biostatistics in the mathematics department, all 1700 students in the Lake Forest community have every opportunity to help themselves to a rich educational experience. I was most impressed with The Center for Chicago Programs, a full service office on everything Chicago: internships, museums, transportation, alumni networking, lectures, concerts, etc. This is the only office of its kind on a college campus, linking a school this closely with a nearby large metropolitan area. Here are some images of the day . . .enjoy!
