Boston's Emerson College, which has long focused on Communications and the Arts, is breaking ground on a new campus in Los Angeles at 5960 W. Sunset Blvd.
The project is designed by architect Thom Mayne of Morphosis Architects and– with its "silver" rating through the LEED program–comes with a price tag of $110 million. Emerson has hosted an internship in Los Angeles for over twenty-five years. With their new campus, they hope to expand their efforts in helping to bridge the gap between college and post-grad life for students seeking careers in the industry. This certainly can't hurt. The likes of Jay Leno, Norman Lear and Henry Winkler count Emerson as their alma matter.
