Chris Lang, AB '10 recipient of the 2010 Taylor Award at the Univ. of Delaware


Brother Lang, from Newark, Del., is graduating with a bachelor of science degree in finance and economics and an Honors bachelor of arts degree in political science. He will be attending New York University School of Law in the fall, with the hopes of practicing corporate law in the future and finding time to give back to his community, hometown and the University of Delaware.

Throughout his time at UD, Lang has maintained a 3.593 grade point average and has achieved Dean's List every semester. Lang has been active in the University community, serving as president of his fraternity, Kappa Delta Rho, and as the captain and president of the UD men's club soccer team. Both groups won national recognition under his leadership. He also serves as a member of the Lerner College of Business and Economics Student Advisory Board.

Chris said he felt honored and excited to receive the award, citing its prestige and tradition.

“The University of Delaware has provided me with a outstanding academic environment coupled with amazing opportunities, experiences and friendships that have allowed me to learn about not only the world around me but also myself,” Lang said. “I hope to be able to continue to exhibit the values of leadership, academic success and community service that this award stands for as I move on from the University of Delaware.”

“Chris is a very bright, industrious and engaged young man with a strong commitment to public life,” said James Magee, professor of political science and international relations. “At some point in the not too distant future, he will emerge in Delaware as one of the state's promising public leaders.”

Chris Lang definitely lives up to the last line of our Credo: "They shall add new lustre to my name."
