What people are saying about the Lang Scholar Program
To be a Lang Scholar is humbling. Above and beyond the athletics or academics, it’s an award that embodies the epitome of character, often unrecognized amongst merit-based awards. I have been honoured to be a part of such a spectacular group of people. If the program has taught me anything, it’s that striving to be the best you can will inspire others to reach their full potential.
—Chris Willcocks ’18
I am lucky to be a Lang Scholar, and I look forward to being a part of the program's continuing development.
