Facilities Management Services recently completed renovations to the Tojo Memorial Garden, in the Kodak Quad, including the addition of new paths. The garden is a tribute to Yasuji Tojo, an RIT photography student who lost his life in an car accident, in 1964, while studying at RIT. The focal point of the garden is a hand-carved granite lantern, a gift of Yasuji’s parents. At their request, the garden was dedicated as a “living memorial to eternal youth.”
