Campus Happenings: April

With Easter coming up this weekend, I figured that I would give you all a taste
of the great things happening on the CIA campus for the Easter holiday weekend, as well as the month of April!

The many clubs and organizations that we have on campus assure that there is a huge variety of events happening every week/weekend in order to give students something free and fun to do.

April is no exception, and we have some pretty awesome things happening here at the Culinary!

April 7th- Peep Show:

The Peep Show is an annual event at the CIA, and it sure is unique. For the students who choose to stay on campus for the long weekend, this event is one you should be sure to attend. The Residence Life team sponsors this sugary-sweet night of games, recipe-creating, and fun, all revolving around the popular Spring marshmallow treat, Peeps!

April 11th- "Taste of CIA" Club forum:

A Club forum is an event that is held each month in the Student Rec Center. It gives each of CIA's student-run clubs a chance to do some advertizing. This particular club forum features, of course, FOOD, and each club will be serving a food that best represents them as an entity. Besides the culinary-focused clubs such as Gourmet Society, Pit-Masters, Brew Club, Bacchus Wine Society, and the Baking and Pastry Society, the CIA also has clubs that revolve around music, poetry, international orginaztions, career advancement, religion, sports, tea, photography and much more!


April 20th-22nd- Earth Day Weekend/Easter Egg Hunt-

This particular weekend will be chock full of events that will be taking place campus wide, and sponsored by many different CIA organizations. One event that is already in the works is 5-on-5 soccer, floor hockey, and basketball. The weekend will end with a bang on Sunday, at the Earth Day Celebration. Here, campus clubs will set up booths along the Hudson River, right behind Rosenthal hall, with different Earth Day-related activities, games and food. The most exciting event of the day is sure to be the Easter Egg hunt held by the Rosenthal RA staff. The hunt will feature over 300 prizes, so everyone will be sure to win!

April 29th- Pizza Cook-off, Sponsored by Saputo Cheese:

The Pizza Cook-off is one of the four annual cook-offs that we have here at the CIA. Besides the chili, chower, and grilled cheese competitions that we hold each year, the Pizza competition is a real crowd (and stomach) pleaser. A handful of teams will be chosen to battle it out to see who has the best pie of them all, and believe me, our chefs will go all-out to get the prize. Of course, being CIA students, these won't be your average pizzas! Saputo cheese is the sponsor, and will be providing all of the cheesy goodness for the competition.


As you can see, there is always something to see and do, even outside the classroom, here at the Culinary. These events are just a taste of things that happen on campus each month, and new events and clubs are popping up each and every week. For more details, check out the CIA's facebook page!

Stay hungry and curious,

Blayre :)
