Campus Life at E.I.
E.I. sits in downtown St. Louis in the middle of a newly renovated neighborhood that borders the home of the St. Louis Rams, The St. Louis Cardinals and The Gateway Arch. While the campus life extends beyond the Institutes’ rustic brick building and into the city, the environment inside is one you cannot find anywhere else. Students are always hard at work whether it’s by themselves propped up against the wall with headphones thinking deeply about their latest project, or in small groups collaborating over something that they believe has immense potential. If you’re lucky enough, you’ll sometimes get a glimpse, or a sound, of LIVE dance classes going on.
During school hours you can find students filtering their way in and out of the institute, most of which with headphones on, being inspired by an instructor or a certain course. If you make your way up to the higher levels of the building you will be graced with numerous classrooms and lounges where students are hard at work putting their newly acquired skills to the test. You’ll also stumble upon Studio-X through some thick sound-proof glass where you can quickly identify the professionalism the students are displaying in such a short time. The equipment E.I provides is the best the industry offers and that too is a reason why our students are dedicated – because they have the tools to make them successful. Some days there is even LIVE instrument players and singers in the studio recording, mixing and engineering something great.
No two days are ever the same at E.I. You will see new people, hear new things and learn new concepts and techniques about the entertainment industry.
