Point Townhouse Opens at the CIA!



I hope you are all staying cool, and had a good time celebrating your Dads this past weekend!


The 17th of June not only marked a special day for Dads all over, but was also the grand opening of the first Townhouse on the CIA campus!


The school has been in construction for the past few months, working on the three new housing units for incoming Bachelors students. Each of the three Townhouses is named after a famous Chef, the first being Fernand Point, the second being Auguste Escoffier, and the last being AntoineCareme.

Each Townhouse holds six or seven units, and each unit holds eight students. Each unit has eight single rooms, three shared full bathrooms and showers, a laundry room with a washer and dryer, and a full kitchen.

I got to help out with the new student check-ins at the Townhouses as part of my RA position here at The Culinary, and it was so exciting to see the new residents moving into their new rooms! The units are coed, and students can sign up in groups as little as 2, or as big as 8, so everyone knows at least one person moving in with them.

I took some pictures so you all could see how nice the units look... I have to admit that I'm pretty jealous. I wish I could live in one!

As you can see, there are some new and amazing changes happening here at the CIA. The Escoffier and Careme Townhouses are still under construction, but if students are interested in living in the Townhouses, be sure to contact Ruth Phillips in Residence Life by calling 845-451-1260.

Stay hungry and curious,

Blayre :)
