Clubs & Activities

As a way to familiarize incoming freshmen and new students with all that Lake Forest Student Activities has to offer, activity sponsors will be hosting Google Meets & Greets! Starting Monday, August 24th, there will be a two week virtual activity fair where sponsors and coaches are hosting Google Meets meetings for only freshmen and new members to attend. These informational meetings will be about 10 minutes long and are meant to introduce the club’s mission, areas of focus, future meeting dates, and membership requirements (if applicable). Student leaders will discuss how a typical meeting runs and answer questions about the commitment required to be a member of the organization. The Google Meets & Greets schedule is linked here. Simply click on the Google Meets link on the day and time indicated to meet the club sponsors! Please note that students must be logged into their LFSchools email account in order to view the document and access the Google Meets links.

In addition, here is a complete list of all club offerings this fall as well as when and where they will be meeting.

If you have any questions about getting involved, please reach out to Ashleigh Malec, Director of Student Activities at amalec@lfschools.net.
