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 Volleyballer is HVIAC Player of the Year

HVIAC 2015Student-athletes at the CIA continue to earn honors for their sports success. In women's volleyball, junior Emily Brown (Clarence, NY) was named the Hudson Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (HVIAC) Co-Player of the Year. For Brown, it's her third straight year on the All-Conference Team. She was joined on the All-Conference Team this year by sophomore Marcela Andonie (San Pedro Sula, Honduras).

The Steels went all the way to the conference championship match, before falling to College of New Rochelle. The CIA beat Pratt Institute in the semifinals and finished the season with a 9-7 overall record. Earlier in October, junior Trish Tran (Germantown, MD) was selected as HVIAC Rookie of the Week for a 21-assist, seven-ace performance in a win over Cooper Union.

In cross country, senior Jonathan Allmond (Baltimore, MD) was named HVIAC Runner of the Week after completing the eight-kilometer course at the Mount Saint Mary Invitational in 31:59. The fall season wrapped up with Allmond repeating as the CIA’s top finisher as the Steels men’s cross country team finished 3rd in the conference championship race. The women’s team took 4th place in the championship.

The soccer team finished with a 4-6-2 overall record, just missing the playoffs after a 1-1 draw against Vaughn College. Midfielder Brent Goodbrake (Tuscaloosa, AL) and defender Michael Graham (Phoenixville, PA), both freshmen, were named to the 2015 All-Conference Team.
