$10 Million Anonymously Donated to UC Irvine

$10 Million Anonymously Donated to UC Irvine

While its student body works toward wrapping up another fulfilling school year at UC Irvine, the university administration received one heck of an anonymous end-of-the-year gift: $10 million. That's one way to say thanks for the memories.

The gift was received from an anonymous donor. The university already has plans for the money: $9 million will go toward an endowment fund for scientific research, while the other $1 million will go toward construction of a new building for the Paul Merage School of Business, according to OC METRO.

That's not too exciting. The Weekly had other ideas in mind.

We were thinking it might be a better idea to outfit university security with vehicles shaped like anteaters. You know, give 'em a new slogan, something like: "Don't f*ck around, the power of anteater will get you!"

Or better yet, why not invest the money in rebranding the sports program with a new mascot, something more fitting or original than an anteater--the Panthers or the Lions or the Feral Cats or how about the UC Irvine Company? Hmm, maybe we should look into this "anonymous donor."
