MMU’s Courtyard Currently the MMU courtyard is an empty, wasted void, and an under utilized, exiled space on our campus. Our goal is to change this, making it a useful, available space for all of MMU; a space that both provides for the school and creates a welcoming atmosphere. This will be achieved by taking aspects of a Japanese Zen Garden and combining these qualities into an artful and seasonally practical student garden.
