Getting to Lake Forest


  • By Air: Fly into Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport
  • From O’Hare: We suggest that conference attendees get from O’Hare to the reserved hotels by using either of two options:

    • Arrange for a “flat-rate taxi to Lake Forest” (estimated to cost $33 for a one-way trip) by calling American Taxi at (847)-673-1000. It is important that the Taxi company not believe that this is a metered trip, which would cost much more.

    • Arrange for a car via Lyft or Uber, both of which are allowed to pick up and drop off passengers at O’Hare. This will be far less expensive than a flat-rate taxi with American Taxi.

  • By Car: Driving directions to Lake Forest College can be found [here]

  • By Commuter Rail: Take the Metra Union Pacific North Line to Lake Forest. Fare information, schedule, and a map can be found [here]


Getting to the Venue

The symposium will be held at the Glen Rowan House at Lake Forest College.

  • We’ll provide a shuttle from both hotels to the Glen Rowan House 2 times a day.

  • Walking directions from the Metra (commuter rail) station can be found [here]

  • View and download a campus map [here] 




Parking is available on site, immediately adjacent to Glen Rowan




The symposium will provide breakfast and lunch on both days, as well as a dinner on Monday night. Please let us know of any dietary restrictions when you register.
