“He loved the students. He never passed a student without speaking to them,” said Ed Stelling, a trustee of the Langdale Foundation Board, former CPA and tax-return consultant, and longtime friend of Dr. Langdale’s.

Langdale served as president for 31 years from 1957 through 1988.  His legacies at Georgia State include Georgia State College becoming Georgia State University, increasing student enrollment from 5,000 to more than 20,000 students, expanding the campus from two to 20 buildings and implementing a nationally ranked law school.
