UCLA's Japanese garden is a beautiful oasis close to campus. Few know of its existence, but those who have seen it love it. Naturally, administrators are coming under fire for yet another bungled decision-making process. According to one of donor Hannah Carter's sons, "There was no communication with any of Hannah Carter's children...We are greatly saddened by this shameful behavior and hope that the university will choose to take the garden off the market."
The bidding process is supposed to start in May. It's possible a future buyer would preserve the land as it is (the buyer would be an idiot not to), but it's sad to think that UCLA could lose this gem.
