Access a New Model
The Chronicle of Higher Education calls the College’s unique career center one of the nation’s “New Models for a New Era.”
Every student gets a career advisor from day one.
Internships and more. It’s all about getting experience.
Here’s why The Chronicle of Higher Education calls us as a “national model.”
- Students are assigned a career advisor when they begin at the College, and join a Career Pathway
- 11 professional career center staff—more than twice the national median
- Students can pursue up to three internships, and more than 50 percent of graduate with internship credit
- 97 percent of the Class of 2015 had jobs or enrolled in graduate school within six months after graduation
Developing career goals — and a plan of action to achieve them — is a central part of the Lake Forest education. Through our signature Career Pathways, you’ll learn how to choose a major, build and activate a professional network, and develop a plan to position yourself for success after college.
