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.

New Bachelor’s Degree Completion Program

The road to a rewarding career in the food and hospitality industries just got shorter for career changers and college students, who can now use the college credits they have already earned to speed up their path to a CIA bachelor’s degree. The new bachelor’s degree in Culinary Arts is designed for motivated students who have at least 30 eligible transfer credits earned at another college.

Students in the program will waste no time beginning the unparalleled hands-on culinary arts education that only the CIA can provide, as their transfer credits will be applied toward liberal arts requirements and free electives. Supplementing culinary arts core courses, students will gain field experience during a three-credit internship and have an opportunity to participate in the college’s semester-away academic concentrations: Advanced Wine, Beverage, and Hospitality; Asian Cuisine; Farm-to-Table; Italian Cuisine; or Latin Cuisine.

As with all CIA students, Culinary Arts bachelor’s students will have access to the college’s career fairs. Several times a year, more than 130 leading restaurants and hospitality companies come to the New York campus to actively recruit, knowing that students with a CIA education are primed for career success.

Transfer and life achievement credits can also be applied to the completion of the CIA’s new Bachelor of Science in Hospitality Management. For more information or an application, visit www.ciachef.edu/cia-admissions or call 1-800-CULINARY.
