| This school is a bit in the middle. Honestly, I have never seen a private school that was this cliquey. The majority of this school's student body is comprised of private school or boarding school grads who come here to extend that experience. The social life is completely lacking and there's absolutely nothing to do on campus if you don't know the right people (i.e. the jocks, the popular girls, the preppy kids)|
That being said, the academics at the school are excellent which in an irony of sorts seems to be about right considering this is a private school. You get your money's worth in education disregarding a certain tenured Calculus professor, but overall, you can't go wrong with the course offerings here. The professors are great and helpful and the classes are for the most part interesting and engage you in ways you never have thought of before.I really want to like this school more than I do, but the lack of social scene really kills the overall grade for this place. But if you want a good education with an overall steady security that you'll have a job waiting at graduation (Thanks to the great infrastructure at the school) then come here.

| The good|
The academic part of the school is vigorous and stimulating. I have already expanded my knowledge and intellectual skills. The athletic department is improving and strives for success. There are plenty of extracurricular activities for every interest possible. The professors are generally helpful and want to see you succeed.
The cafeteria used to be an awesome place to eat but within the past year has turned into a complete waste of my tuition. Food is consistently repeated and overused. Hot dogs, burgers, fries, and pizza every day get old fast. They have taken away anything that remotely tasted delicious (the California club comes to mind). Res life constantly harasses its residence. Do not ever live in Deerpath. I have seen cats and dogs smarter than the residence director. This lady has gone full potato. You will get fined every week for other peoples messes. The toilets are full of piss everyday. Throw up and blood are a common monthly occurrence in the bathrooms as well.

| Rick Cohen is the biggest idiot to enter Lake Forest. This guy must be missing chromosomes because I cannot explain his stupidity. By the way Dick is the head of public safety and is the one of the very few reasons anyone should not come to this college. |
While I am at it I'll throw Jackie Slatts in here too. Her feminist antics need to stop. Lake Forest could be a powerhouse in athletics but is greatly held back. I do like the college though. It is expanding and heading in the right direction.
