Campus Resources: great tutors, great library, all sorts of activities and learning experiences on a daily and weekly basis

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: Right now the athletic center is under construction but it will be great when it is done. The campus has a wonderful library and multiple types of clubs and organizations to join. There is not a lot to do on the weekends. But there is a bus on Saturday that takes you to the mall and grocery stores.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: Wireless access is awful in the afternoons and it is sometimes known to crash which sucks if you waited to the last minute to work on a project. The computer labs are wonderful and are located almost everywhere. Printing does cost but it is not bad.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Teachers are always willing to help you especially through your practical's

Tuition & Financial Aid: There is some scholarship help but overall it is very expensive also uniforms get dirty and you have to pay for new ones tools in your kit gets damaged, lost, or stolen and most time than not you have to pay for them. The tuition is a set price for your first semester so if you get out of classes then you just have a free time that you are considerably still paying for.

4 College Junior

Student Body: Everyone is really friendly and try to help you when you are completely lost. It is pretty much a judgment free zone. One nice thing is there are organizations and groups for different religions, sexual orientation, and ethnical backgrounds. It is easy to find someone to get along with and fit in.

4 College Junior

Facilities: Well we are a specialized school, so that in itself is unique. Everyone that goes to CIA is either or has gone through one of two associates degrees, the baking and pastry or culinary arts degree.

4 College Junior

Student Body: I'd say we have a very wide variety when looking at the student body. We have students from all over the world that share the same love and passion for cooking. When saying that I believe the majority of kids that go to my school are extremely accepting to diversity. Talking about diversity, we are as different as it comes! Everyone is accepted whether you are black, white, gay, straight, asian or jewish...there is absolutely no discrimination.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I do believe that I am getting my "moneys worth". If you think about food costs plus the awesome education included there really isn't any possible way to keep tuition very low.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: I must say the workload is on the heavy side and the curriculum is fast pace, which actually could better us in that the culinary field is extremely fast pace and always changing! As for internship and job opportunities, they are very helpful and resourceful. I found my first year externship without breaking a sweat and it was quick and easy.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Professors, as in academic could honestly use some work, I have had some that appear to be far from qualified. On the contrary I cannot say the same about the chefs that teach at the CIA. They really all are resourceful with their own styles and teaching methods which aid in making all CIA grads well rounded cooks.

4 College Junior

Career Services: The network of alumni is probably the best I have ever seen. There are always people who want to help out others with anything they need. Alumni often hire recent grads which I think is amazing. The career services office provides resume help, job placement, internships, and much more. To me it is the best resource on campus. The CIA is constantly holding job fairs and interviews with perspective employers which makes finding a job post-graduation that much easier.

Facilities: The best part about CIA is the many many different clubs and organizations that reside on campus. There is a club for almost any and everything which I think is amazing because it gives everyone, even the most fickle of person a chance to belong to something and experience their school in a new way.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: Students have access to a network of resources including a network of alumni who love to help current students. Job, placement, homework help, course catalogs. Everything you need can be found and accessed on the student portal.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: When a student makes the decision to attend a college they must weight first the pros and cons of attending the school of their choice. Does the value and quality of education you are getting balance out the cost of attendance? At CIA it depends. Like anything in life your education is what you make it. So for some it could be the best decision of their lives and for others it could be the worst. For me, it was one of the best decisions I have ever made.

3 College Junior

Student Body: The Culinary Institute of America prides itself on being a diverse campus with students from all across the globe. There are many clubs and organizations so everyone can find something they want to be apart of. Most students are extremely hard working, career orientated and take pride in the high academic standards they are asked to adhere to.
