Athletics has always been a great tradition at Lake Forest College, and in the spirit of that tradition, the College invites you to join the Forester Athletic Network (F.A.N. Club) -- an organization whose members are dedicated to supporting Forester student-athletes and programs initiated by the athletic department at Lake Forest College.

Established in 1995, the mission of the F.A.N. Club is to promote school spirit, increase attendance at sporting events, and build enthusiasm for Forester Athletics.  The F.A.N. Club also hosts social activities, supports athletic alumni outreach, and keeps members informed about upcoming events, season results, and other Forester athletic news.  Further, the F.A.N. Club is to raise funds for special initiatives (uniforms, equipment, recruiting, etc.) that enhance the College's athletic programs and facilities.
