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.
