4 College Junior

Academic Experience: The unique aspect about the CIA's program is that each class is only 3 weeks. You only take 1 kitchen class per 3 weeks, maybe with a little academic class later in the day. They are informing, challenging, and productive. Everyday you have to attend to class, because in the restaurant world you are expected to be there ready to work. Sometimes the faculty can vary, if you are an AM or PM student. Personally, I would say they will push you. Come to class prepared everyday, having game plans detailed, know your fundamentals, understand your recipes before coming to class and most important, keep your knives sharp at all times.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: The classes are chosen for you during the AOS program, and books are given to you. If continuing to the BPS program, you have the freedom to pick your classes, but you are responsible for your own books. Most instructors would post their information on moodle, where it is very important to use that tool.

Generally the workload is come to prepare to class everyday, and if your an AM student be ready to wake up at least 5:30am to go to class at 6. Or maybe 4:30am and be ready at the kitchen by 5:30am. There will be some instructors who will ask you to complete study questions and key terms. Most of them will require a detailed game plans and the required recipes.

If having trouble in a class be sure to go and use the tutoring services. They are very helpful, and be sure to contact them ahead.

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I've really enjoyed the process of learning but being in a hospitality driven industry, I would think that hospitality would be a priority at the school and it's not. Time and time again it's been proven to me that all they care about is the money unfortunately. I've enjoyed most of my professors/chefs as well, that is until I met Chef Viverito. He's an arrogant asshole that should not be teaching. I really hope that my experience gets better, but so far I would not recommend this school to anyone interested in a culinary future.

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I wonder what it used to be like, I've heard the curriculum was a lot different not too long ago. I don't understand why they got rid of the charcuterie class and I don't understand why you only have Fundamentals 2 days a week. I think more time in the kitchen is essential for learning the skills that are needed to pass.

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I'm not sure we offer courses not related to the culinary arts and I wish we did because I do hope to learn other things.
