Montclair University held a ribbon cutting ceremony on the 26th in celebration of their brand new, state of the art multimedia School of Communications and Media building. MSU alumni, University board members, state legislators, staff, and students alike all got to tour the impressive new building post-ceremony.
According to Montclair State University’s President, Susan A. Cole, ‘impressive’ could possibly be an understatement as it may be “the most technologically advanced media and production facility of any university in North America and…is, in fact, more advanced than many professional facilities.”
The facility will provide students a wealth of opportunity for education and growth within the industry they’ve chosen to study, and as special guest New Jersey State Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg expressed, there is hope for students to utilize the new facility as they “go out and change the world.”
The building was made possible through a strategic partnership between MSU and Sony Electronics’ Professional Solutions Americas. Some of the tools and resources include 4K and HD studios and control rooms, multimedia labs, and an advanced studio production center.
The building has been dubbed “Hollywood East” and it’s sure to make a great difference in the education of students at MSU!
