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 Grads Achieve Milestone with Korean Restaurant

Jungsik Yim ’05, CIA Chef/Owner

The just-released 2014 Michelin Guide for New York gives two stars to the new-wave Jungsik restaurant in lower Manhattan. The forces behind this groundbreaking restaurant are CIA graduates Jungsik Yim ’05, chef/owner; Jonghun Won ’06, pastry chef; and Kyungmoon Kim ’05, wine director/sommelier. With this honor, Chef Yim becomes the first Korean chef in the world to garner two Michelin stars.

The CIA student body includes aspiring culinarians from about 30 countries, and South Korea leads the way among international students at the college. There are currently 131 undergraduates from South Korea pursuing their associate or bachelor’s degrees from the CIA, more than from any other country.
