Letter from Admissions to a prospective student with a disability

A letter from the Director of Admissions to an admitted student to the Class of 1981. The director is open about the inaccessibility of Dartmouth's campus and the difficulty wheelchair users have had attending Dartmouth in the past, but encourages the student to contact Dave Eckels for perspective on the disabled experience at Dartmouth. The letter's recipient is likely the same student who decided to attend Northwestern, thereby giving the College “at least a one year reprieve.”
