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.

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.

Academic Experience: The Culinary Institute of America lives up to it's name as the premiere culinary school. It's resources reach far beyond what I expected. The faculty are extremely gifted in their own rights and are passionate about passing their knowledge onto their students. Although the course work can be challenging and overwhelming at times I find that there are a dozen people at my disposal who are more than willing to help me in any way they can. The resources also don't just apply to current students, alumni also have a network where they can get job placement help and more. The school really does try and provided everyone with amazing opportunities to grow in their field.

Academic Experience: The curriculum itself is designed to push it's students. I broken up into blocks, and during these blocks you take one class and it's a concentration of work for three weeks. Then you move on to the next class. You are constantly moving and working and being pushed. Which is great because you can't get lazy or slack off. You have to stay on top of your work and push yourself to get through it even when it's hard. I am a Baking and Pastry student so my courses range from Breads, to Chocolates, to Cake Decorating, to Plated Desserts. You learn so much so quickly that you can't fall off and it makes it difficult to fail.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: we have very detailed three week classes on subjects required in the culinary industry and have great chefs and MITs that are always available for questions any student has.
