Some of the nation's best scholars and most talented young football players met with President James Wright, Head Football Coach Eugene F. "Buddy" Teevens III '79, members of the current team, and others recently at a breakfast in the Hanover Inn.
After making quick work of an ample buffet, the team and their guests heard first from Teevens, who introduced President Wright. "I have never worked with a president who's more supportive of athletic programs," he said, describing a range of facilities that have recently been completed or are under construction.
Wright then explained what might be in store for the students should they enroll at Dartmouth. "We work hard here. We respect each other and enjoy ourselves," he said. "At Dartmouth, you develop friendships for life. Teamwork, collegiality, and perhaps the finest undergraduate program in the country, define this place."
