Lake Forest College In The Loop
Lake Forest College In The Loop offers a wide-ranging, flexible, yet focused academic program featuring internships, courses taught by Lake Forest faculty, and courses from our Loop program partners: Roosevelt University (RU), Columbia College Chicago (CCC), the School of the Art Institute (SAIC).
The academic program is a full-semester, four-credit curriculum. While participating in the In The Loop program, you will complete an academic internship of two credits, totaling 300 hours over the course of the semester. Given the experiential/immersive nature of the program, the internship is a key component of the In The Loop program.
You will also complete up to two additional academic credits, chosen from:
1. ITL option: Courses offered by the Lake Forest College In The Loop program (ITL) and taught by our faculty at the Loop campus.
The Loop always offers LOOP 202: Professional Development in the 21st Century (1 credit).
Each semester, the In The Loop program offers a second course taught by Lake Forest College faculty.
The ITL courses are scheduled on a single day to provide maximum flexibility for your internship schedule.
Further, the In The Loop program offers the optional LOOP 201: In The Loop Practicum, a .5-credit experience that can be used to achieve four transfer credits if you choose to take courses from RU, SAIC, or CCC that do not transfer in as full credits.
2. Campus option: Courses offered at Lake Forest College main campus.
3. Partner Institution option: Courses offered at our Loop partner institutions: Columbia College Chicago, Roosevelt University, the School of the Art Institute.
Please note that the provided links will take you to view the course catalogs of each college so that you may understand their offerings, but that we cannot guarantee they will be offered each semester, nor can we guarantee admittance to any/all partner institution courses.
Under this option, students may take up to two courses at any one partner institution. Students may take one course at a partner institution, and other courses with the ITL option or on-campus Lake Forest College courses.
Students that choose the Partner Institution option (RU, CCC, or SAIC) may also need to take LOOP 201 to maintain four credits for the semester.
Please Note: Students may only take courses at a Partner Institution that count towards a required credit for either their major/minor, as opposed to having a “general interest” in any particular course or for their Forester Fundamental Curriculum (FFC). Courses must support your academic programs and be approved by your Academic Advisor(s).
Incoming ISEP students must take ITL courses or taught on Lake Forest College’s main campus.

The First-Year Studies Program (FIYS)
First-year studies classes are small in size to encourage interaction and discussion. The FIYS professors also serve as the students’ primary academic advisors and help them navigate the College’s academic offerings during their first year. With many topics to choose from, first-year studies courses cover a wide range of academic interests from music, art, and politics to neuroscience, terrorism and religion, many with a focus on Chicago or directly utilizing the resources available there. Chicago plays an integral role in the FIYS program. Students travel to the city with their class during orientation week, providing a first-hand introduction to how the educational, cultural, and social resources of Chicago will influence their coursework and experiences during their four years at Lake Forest.
The Richter Scholars Program
This program provides students, early in their academic careers, with the opportunity to conduct independent, individual research with Lake Forest faculty. In the summer after their first year, each student in the Richter Program is employed for a ten-week period and does independent research one-on-one with a faculty member.
This program allows students to develop an academic major of their own, working closely with a faculty advisor, culminating in a thesis or a creative project.
The academic calendar is based on two 15-week semesters, beginning in August and January. Students normally take four four-credit courses per semester (the equivalent of 16 credits).
There are no teaching assistants at the College. Courses are taught in small classroom settings by professors who are experts in their fields and who also serve students as one-on-one advisors. In addition to classroom studies, students are encouraged to complete an internship, conduct original research, and study abroad for a semester.
A Lake Forest graduate will have studied a broad range of ideas; developed real competence in writing, speaking, and quantitative skills; and gained significant experience in humanities, natural sciences and mathematics, and social sciences while completing requirements for a major in an academic department or interdisciplinary program. The College’s General Education Curriculum, advising system, and major requirements are designed to support these educational ideals.
Lake Forest awards the bachelor of arts (BA) degree in both traditional academic departments and interdisciplinary programs. Areas of study include: African American studies, American studies, anthropology, area studies, studio art, art history, art education, Asian studies, biology, biochemistry and molecular biology, business (concentrations in accounting and marketing available), chemistry, cinema studies, classical studies, communication, computer science, data science, digital media design, economics, education (elementary and secondary), engineering (dual degree), English (literature and writing), entrepreneurship and innovation, environmental studies, finance, gender, sexuality and women’s studies, history, international relations, Islamic world studies, journalism, Latin American studies, legal studies, mathematics, medieval and renaissance studies, modern languages and literatures (Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish), museum studies, music, music education, neuroscience, philosophy, physics, politics, print and digital publishing, psychology, religion, self-designed major, social justice, sociology, theater, urban studies. Lake Forest also offers pre-professional programs in law, medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, nursing, pharmacy, physical therapy.
Accelerated and dual-degree programs are offered. Dual-degree programs are available in law, international studies, pharmacy, and engineering. Lake Forest is affiliated with several competitive law schools that allow students to complete a bachelor’s degree and a law degree in a total of six years, rather than the usual seven. Qualified Lake Forest College students may be admitted to the Monterey Institute of International Studies with accelerated status, and can complete their master’s degrees with 48 credits as opposed to the 60 normally required. A dual-degree program has been arranged, leading to a bachelor of arts degree in biology from Lake Forest College and a doctor of pharmacy from the Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science. The engineering program is in cooperation with the Sever Institute of Technology at Washington University (St. Louis). Our Health Professions Program, in conjunction with Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science, provides multiple pathways for students to prepare for graduate programs and careers in the field of health care.

Lake Forest College COVID-19 outbreak fueled by dorm social gatherings involving men’s hockey team, school president says
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (WLS) — Lake Forest College has confirmed at least a dozen students are positive for COVID-19, and dozens more students are now in quarantine. It comes as the students returned to campus after remote learning last semester.
School administrators had put together a detailed plan with strict protocols for a safe return of in-person learning. But less than a week into the new semester, the rest of the school year is in jeopardy.
School officials said it happened at one of the dormitories, with social gatherings in multiple rooms creating a potential superspreader event.
In a letter on the Lake Forest College website, the school’s president said: “More than one student apparently believed that testing negative last Friday … meant it was safe to gather with others on Saturday.”
That resulted in at least 12 students testing positive for COVID-19. Another 28 are in quarantine, including “a majority of the members of our men’s hockey team,” according to the letter.
After all-remote instruction last fall, Lake Forest College students returned to campus this week to a regular testing protocol as seen in a YouTube video produced by the college.
The school installed enhanced ventilation, assembled a team of more than two dozen contact tracers, and administrators laid out strict masking and social distancing rules in a 20-page memo.
Those rules included no indoor social gatherings permitted during the first few weeks of the semester, and no leaving dorm rooms, except for class, meals, and other essential needs.
The school’s president issued a dire warning in his letter: “If many more students test positive… the rest of this semester could be jeopardized.”
In a statement to ABC 7, the school’s president said the 12 students who tested positive have mild symptoms, are in the care of the college’s health center, and that testing and contact tracing will continue throughout the semester.
Full statement from Lake Forest College President Stephen Schutt:
Twelve Lake Forest College students tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday and Tuesday. They represent less than one percent of the student population the College is testing weekly or more frequently. All twelve went immediately into isolation under the care and guidance of the College’s health center, and all are experiencing only mild symptoms. Contact tracing identified 28 other students who had recent contact with the initial 12, and all of those 28 are now in quarantine as a precautionary measure. The College takes the coronavirus very seriously, and our robust testing and contact tracing program will continue throughout the spring semester.

90,000 13 best language schools in Lake Forest in 2021 (from $ 230)
American English Language School
“I love their warranty program!”
“AELS is an amazing English language school in Orange County.”
(Translated by Google Translate)
Since its creation in 2008, AELS has made every effort to find the most effective educational methods with the goal of teaching local American English. As a result of these efforts, AELS has developed an educational system that incorporates its own educational philosophy.
The differentiated education system that AELS offers is based on effective and diverse educational content developed in-house with careful supervision of academic achievement, immediate academic performance feedback, in-depth local culture / life experience activities, quality education, and teaching management to maintain passionate and friendly class sessions.The goal is to maximize the development of practical conversational English skills in a short period of time by way of a small number of class members taught by 100% native speakers. AELS has refrained from the existing language school system in order to improve the students’ effective conversational skills. We are also centered on maintaining an average of 5 students in each class. This is because conversation-oriented classes that require active participation and provide immediate feedback from English teachers can maximize learning efficiency.In addition, the affordable tuition at AELS provides a reasonable and economical choice for students, as compared to other academic institutions operating classes of medium and large sizes.
AELS has a proven ESL program that has earned accreditation from the Commission on English Language Accreditation (CEA), a professional certification agency for English education in the United States.
Brea is a great place to study as well as to experience the warm, mild climate and the lifestyle of Southern California.You can enjoy the beautiful, high-income neighborhoods and the crime-free nature of the city. There are also a variety of local attractions, including Disneyland and the nearby city of Los Angeles.
For valuable, efficient, and exciting US language training, AELS will be the best option. We are ready to help you with all aspects of your English language program, from the language school application and F-1 visa acquisition to navigating local life. If you have any plans to study English now or in the future, please do not hesitate to contact us.—
Are you wondering why AELS requires you to sign up for 12 weeks? We have good reasons for this. Through our research and reflection on our program, we learned that students who are only in class together for a month tend to spend a good portion of the first and second week being shy and hesitant to speak or participate in class. They are still getting used to each other halfway through the month, which means they are only making real progress for approximately 2 weeks before they are off to a new class group and new students with whom to repeat the process.We wanted to make this getting-to-know-you process faster and more meaningful.
To speed the process up, we limit our classes to a maximum of 8 students per class. Everyone will get used to talking and participating in class much more quickly and comfortably. In addition, we decided to extend the courses to take place over 12 weeks, instead of breaking them down into three 4-week courses. While students in month-long classes may take 2 weeks acclimating and 2 weeks making real progress each month, students in our quarterly courses will take only about 1-week acclimating and will make 11 weeks of real progress.2021 Start Dates:
January 4, 2021
April 5, 2021
