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.

Shucks for a Good Cause

Chef Charlie Palmer ’79, restaurateur and chairman of the board of trustees of the CIA, hosted his 2nd Annual Oyster Social at his famed New York City restaurant, Aureole.Chef Charlie Palmer ’79, restaurateur and chairman of the board of trustees of the CIA, hosted his 2nd Annual Oyster Social at his famed New York City restaurant, Aureole this fall. The event included an oyster shucking showdown involving teams of CIA students, with attendees sponsoring each team based on the number of oysters they could shuck within the three-minute time limit.

 

Proceeds from the evening benefited Citymeals-on-Wheels, with the shucking competition alone raising $1,935 for the charity.

Chef Palmer and his staff at Aureole appreciated the fact that the CIA students volunteered their time to support this worthy cause. As a bonus, the students had a chance to network with leaders in the New York City restaurant scene who can help them in their careers once they graduate!
