By some measures, Don Rains is a typical member of Dartmouth's incoming freshman class of 2013 that will arrive on campus in September 2009. He loves Shakespeare, and he can't wait to enroll in some studio art courses. But, at 45 years old, he'll be a non-traditional student on this Ivy League campus in a category all by himself. In this podcast he talks about his painting process and his hope to launch a program that encourages "dynamic decision making" among young adults.
