Unfortunately, the fires affecting our community continue to grow. Yesterday, Red Flag warnings were issued through Friday afternoon representing ideal conditions for fire combustion and spread.

Given this, we have made the decision to delay a return to in-person instruction at Greystone until Monday, October 12. All campus buildings will remain closed until that time. Our intention is to reopen the Residence Halls on Sunday, October 11. While we expect the situation to be resolved by then, we must acknowledge this is a fluid situation; we will continue to remain in touch with students via email and the Everbridge Emergency Notification system as further information becomes available.

Classes, which resumed Wednesday, September 30 online, will continue to be delivered virtually during this interim period. By continuing in this way, instructors will be able to keep pace with the semester—providing lecturing instruction now on theory and techniques, and enabling students to get right back into the kitchens and bakeshops once campus reopens. Students, please continue to monitor the student portal and your Moodle sites for further information regarding your classes.

Most students have returned home already or are staying with family or friends. If you are unable to do this for an extended period, or if you have remained behind and are staying at Copia, our Student Affairs team can offer assistance. Please update your status on the "2020 Glass Fire Status" form on the Residence Life portal to keep us apprised of your status or to indicate that you need assistance.

CIA Athletes Earn Honors

Several athletes for the CIA sports teams have been honored by the Hudson Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (HVIAC).

CIA Athlete Emily Brown In early October, the Steels swept both the men's and women's cross country Runners of the Week awards. Sophomore Grant Rico (Silverdale, WA) and freshman Olivia José (St. Fords, NJ) were recognized for their great races at the Mt. St. Mary Invitational on October 4. Later in the month, Rico finished 11th in the men's conference championship race. José finished eighth in the women's championship, just ahead of fellow freshmen teammates Cheyenne Boinais (Clawson, MI) and Angela Piccinich (Farmingdale, NJ). The strong finish by three freshmen bodes well for the Steels heading into the 2015 season.

Sophomore volleyball player Emily Brown (Clarence, NY) was named to the All-Conference Team, after the Steels finished their season with a 6-7 record. For the week of October 21, freshman Marcela Andonie (San Pedro Sula, Honduras) was named the women’s volleyball Rookie of the Week.

The men's soccer team, meanwhile, won the HVIAC regular season with a 5-1 record (8-4-1 overall), and headed into the conference tournament as the top seed, before falling in an overtime penalty shootout to Berkeley. The Steels were led this season by sophomore striker Dan Landon (Johnsburgh, IL) with 15 goals, and the strong goalkeeping of sophomore Jonathan Bedell (Naperville, IL) with a 1.25 goals against average and three shutouts.
