    UMass Dartmouth is a Brutalist style of architecture, meaning it’s almost 100% cement, and has long flat roofs among sheer walls and overhanging benches, as seen below, this style is about as close to perfection as you can come for Parkour, the only problem I’ve found (in all of 2 weeks here) are the wide open spaces between buildings/spots.

    Conditions: Just like Umass Amherst, Dartmouth is big, but has a very set architectural system. There are areas for all types of movement and training including roofs that we’re almost made to pk on, long drops, and features a very large forest that completely surrounds the school as well as intersects it in some areas.

    Plod: having only been here 2 weeks I cannot accurately say how the UMass PD here would react, they seem fairly laid back, but than again I haven’t been doing anything very crazy, the faculty care even less. I will update this as the year goes by with more info.

    Supplies: The campus offers just about everything you need, with 11 food service locations throughout the campus and the Campus store located in the administration building, everything you could need is right there. For those uncomfortable eating on campus downtown North Dartmouth is a 5 minute bus ride away, which depart from the main section of campus on the hour.

    Directions: It’s fairly simple just off of 195 exit 12 its a easy location, especially when you get close and the signs all lead you there.

    Overall: maybe not as much of a heaven as Amherst is, but at least for me it has so far offered endless amounts of new ideas, now i just have to wait until the point at which I can do them /Cheesy
