Peggy Epstein Tanner ’79
“…From the moment Eric was accepted, I have cherished sharing the Dartmouth experience. I think Dartmouth today is an even stronger and better college with greater diversity and more social and academic opportunities than I had, but the core of what makes Dartmouth so unique is still very much intact. He is having his own Dartmouth experience, but in so many ways my father, my sister, and I can relate. The other day Eric called from Holt’s Ledge at the Dartmouth Skiway. It was a beautiful fall day, and during his free afternoon he decided to take a hike. Aside from being jealous, I thought, there is nothing better than being a Dartmouth student.”
