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.

3D Food Printing Comes to the CIA

 3D food printingThe CIA has partnered with 3D Systems to give students the opportunity to explore the future of three-dimensional (3D) printed food and artisan culinary methods. The college and 3D Systems are developing educational collaborations and launching a beta program for the ChefJet™ Pro culinary 3D printer.

State-of-the-art 3D food printers housed at the New York campus will be integrated into the baking and pastry arts and culinary science curricula beginning this spring. Additionally, 3D Systems will provide CIA students with fellowship and internship programs at The Sugar Lab, its Los Angeles-based 3D printing culinary innovation center.

Later this year, the CIA will commence a beta-testing program for the soon-to-be produced ChefJet Pro professional-grade food printer. The printer will be able to create edible 3D printed confections from custom candies to ornate cake toppers.
