About Diddle's Depot

Walker's campus store, Diddle’s Depot, is actually named for Ethel Walker herself! Her young niece often mispronounced "Ethel," and it often came out as "Diddle". When that niece enrolled at Walker’s, she had difficulty giving up her childhood name for her beloved aunt and the moniker was eventually widely adopted by other students and even by Ethel Walker Smith’s husband, "Dr. Terry."

Located on the lower level of Beaver Brook Academic Center, Diddle's is a hub of activity. Here, students may purchase school supplies, Walker's casual wear, snacks, gifts, and more. The store offers personal services such as laundry and dry-cleaning, as well as check cashing.

The store encourages all students to maintain a personal debit account, which can be replenished easily at any time by cash, check or credit card (Discover, American Express, Master Card and Visa) by calling Store Manager Bertha Entsil at +1-860-408-4220.
