USC Annenberg School Breaks Ground for New Building

USC Annenberg School Building Groundbreaking CeremonyThe USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism broke ground on Nov. 8, 2012 on a building that will turn the fundamentals of human interaction into physical reality. The ceremony also marks the launch of the school’s $150 million fundraising initiative, part of the $6 billion Campaign for USC. Funded with a $50 million gift from the Annenberg Foundation, the five-story, 88,000-square-foot Wallis Annenberg Hall will bridge the traditional and transformational. Its exterior harmonizes with USC’s iconic architecture, while its ultramodern interior fosters “blue-sky” thinking.
