Culinary Institute of America Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (2)
The CIA is the pedigree of culinary schools, providing an extraordinary experience from the initial fundamentals classes to the restaurant classes in your final term. There was never a moment where I regretted attending the CIA. It has not only cultured me for the vast industry I will be thrusted into upon graduation. There are unique classes such as the intensive wines studies course not only elevating our understanding of wine but introducing possibilities in the FOH otherwise unaware to me. The networking opportunities here are immense and anyone would be foolish not to take advantage of that. I attended this school to learn how to be an excellent chef and leader, now I desire to be an outstanding hospitality professional representing the CIA and influencing this industry I've chosen.
It is a great school for those who are looking for a well-rounded degree program in Culinary arts. I think that school could do a much better job at helping their students with financial aid by offering more grants and scholarships and less loans.
