Dartmouth can be a difficult place for students on crutches to navigate, especially for those who have not been on crutches before, according to students interviewed by The Dartmouth. Not all buildings are accessible, and the ones that are have accessible entrances that are far away from the main entrances.

“I have been on crutches in many different places, but being on crutches at Dartmouth is definitely the worst,” Marina Moschitto ’14 said.

The hardest buildings to navigate are older buildings such as Dartmouth Hall, Thorton Hall, Reed Hall and Robinson Hall.

Students are also able to arrange for note-taking services or reschedule exam times for medical reasons…. Read more »

Happy (almost) 30th birthday, Bean’s Art Store! Imagine a lovely looking young lady on a stallion riding across a covered bridge on her way to Norwich High School … And then imagine the current owner of Bean’s Art Store, Heather Cantlin, three generations later — having her son check people out, balancing being a single mother with running the store. Not much has changed though — the store still doesn’t have a computer, and they don’t use scanners at checkout.
