    Spotlight On: Eric JenkinsU.S. Army

    My passion is in cooking. Food is my life. So after retiring from the Army in February 2008, I went back to school at Central Texas College to complete my associate degree in Hospitality and Culinary Management. But I felt unfulfilled in my search to learn all that I can about cooking, so I decided that I wanted to attend a real culinary school. After an informative discussion with a CIA graduate/co-worker I set my sights on The Culinary Institute of America.
  • Faces of the CIA

    Sure The Culinary Institute of America has world-class facilities and a reputation for education excellence. But when it gets right down to it, it’s the amazing people who have made—and will continue to make—the CIA experience something truly unique and special. Whether it’s the phenomenal knowledge and dedication of our instructors, the great energy and enthusiasm of our students, or the wide-ranging success of our alumni, these members of the CIA family enrich the world’s premier culinary college in so many ways.
