Pasadena, CA
Ambassador College's Fine Arts and Science Halls and the Dining Hall were built in 1966. The Hall of Administration was built in 1967. The Ambassador Auditorium was built in 1974. The college officially closed in 1997. In 2004, the college property was purchased by Maranatha High School and the Harvest Rock Church. These photos are from 2012. In 2013, the Fine Arts and Science Halls were demolished for condo development. The Hall of Administration will also be demolished. I believe the Auditorium and the Dining Hall will be spared.
