Class of 2023

Henry Langbo

Originally from Columbus Georgia, Henry is pursuing majors in Economics and Political Science as well as a minor in Computing and Digital Technologies. This summer he’s working on LEO’s undergraduate team as a Research Operations intern to evaluate anti-poverty initiatives alongside LEO’s staff and faculty.

We asked Henry why he wanted to work for LEO.

“I chose LEO because of its mission,” he explained. “Working at LEO allows me to use my research skills and knowledge of economics to make a positive impact in the world around me. I am motivated to fight to end poverty and believe that creating more efficient government programs and nonprofits is a very realistic and encouraging avenue to do so.”

In this upcoming fall semester, Henry will be the Vice President of Keenan Hall where he’s excited to plan dorm programming and social events.

We asked Henry about his favorite spot on campus: “My favorite spot on campus to hang out with friends is either North Quad or the lakes. North Quad is a great spot to throw a football around and relax, and the lakes are great for taking a walk and catching up with friends.”
