What is your favorite Orientation memory?

My favorite Orientation memory when I was a new student was competing in a game show with a Forester Guide during one of the evening events.

What is one piece of valuable advice that you would tell an incoming student to Lake Forest College?

Don’t stress about making new friends within the first moment you arrive on campus. Everyone is going through the same experience as you. I promise, there will be plenty of opportunities to meet new people. It will come naturally. You will meet people that share your interests and may even open your eyes to new ones. Talk to your Forester Guides! They are here to help you first and foremost with whatever you may need. Trust them. They were once new students like you. And they’re a lot of fun! You are going to have an amazing time here at Lake Forest College.
