Numerous COVID-19 precautions are in place to ensure the health and safety of our campus community. Our COVID-19 Dashboard will be updated every Wednesday with testing results. Other information can be found on our main COVID-19 page

Visit Campus

Make the most out of your campus visit whether it is virtually or in-person. We can customize your visit according to your interests.

COVID-19 Update

We are welcoming a limited number of visitors on campus, Monday through Saturday. Our top priority remains the health, safety, and well-being of our campus community and visitors. As a result, visitors are required to wear a mask and practice social distancing throughout their visit as per guidance provided by the CDC and the State of Illinois. We are also asking visitors to submit a pre-visit symptoms questionnaire prior to arrival on campus. Tour guides will be assigned only one family per time slot to allow for the smallest possible number of people on each tour.

We will continue to offer virtual experiences that can be tailored to your interests. You can find the most up-to-date information for the College at lakeforest.edu/coronavirus.

It pays to visit!

First-year and transfer students applying for Spring 2021 and Fall 2021 who take part in a virtual visit or visit campus will receive $2,000 annually towards their cost of attendance at the College.

Domestic students are eligible for the visit grant. International students, please contact your admissions counselor to determine your eligibility for the visit grant.
