Overall Experience: It is a great school, I have only been there for one year so far, but I can say this past year has been a very educational and I have learned so much. It is very stressful but it is so worth it.

Academic Flexibility: You do not get to choose when you take your classes, the whole first year is planned out before you get there and you stick with your same class for the entire year. I do not mind, the classes either take time in the morning or at night so it was not hard finding a job to be flexible with my schedule.

Career Services: The career center has been more focused on externship rather than after graduation, I am sure that will change as we get closer to graduating.

Overall Experience: The career networking fair is great to go to and get new contacts and explore where you may want to end up after graduation. It shows you just how many options are out there for you.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: The first semester is where it all comes down to. This semester provides the most workload, and in order to pass you have to study. The externship opportunity is a great thing offered by the school. It lets you get out there and show everyone what you can do and it is great experience as well.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: You have to be willing and determined to study hard. The hardest part is the first semester which contains mostly lectures and tests, after you make it through the first part, it is mostly hands on classes in the kitchen. Your class will become family to you before your first year is over, you may not like all your class mates but you must be willing to work together with them to make it through.

Academic Flexibility: During associates degree programs either in Culinary or Baking Pastry, there are no academic flexibility. Either classes be in the AM or PM. An entire class day can be at least up to 12 hours.

During the Bachelor's program, you have the choice to be flexible with your own classes.

4 Recent Alumnus

Career Services: Career services are great, especially when it comes to reviewing your resume. They accept walk ins but be sure to make appointments ahead of time, especially during career fair sessions, which is held at least 4 times throughout the year. Very helpful when it comes to finding externships, and will be helpful after graduating from the CIA.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: Classes can either start really early or end late rather than a traditional college, which gives a chance to simulate as the real world (as working in a restaurant).

Online Courses: There are no online courses available at the CIA

5 College Student

Academic Flexibility: The CIA has 16 different starting/graduation dates per year, so students are able to join the classes which would be most convenient for their personal schedules.

5 College Student

Career Services: Everybody graduates from the CIA with a job. Whether it is working in a local restaurant/bakery or at a large company, graduates are guaranteed a job, since many employers prefer CIA graduates to those of other culinary schools.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: Class sizes are very small, and courses are set without room for choices in classes.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: The alumni network of this school is amazing. Many CEOs and founders of today's most successful restaurants and food/beverage companies are graduates from the CIA.

4 College Student

Academic Experience: As a baking and pastries major, I am part of a minority at the CIA. Only about 1/3 of the students there are also baking majors, versus the 2/3 who are culinary majors. I am excited to work in smaller classes than usual and be able to personally work with my instructors.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: I'm very excited to attend this school because of how hospitable everybody is there, and how everybody there loves food! This is the only school in the area at which everyone is obsessed with everything food-related.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: The class times and schedule aren't that bad.
