    Poughkeepsie is only 10 minutes away, however we only go to the hookah bar in town. The town is super sketchy other than that. 20 minutes north is a cute town called Rhinebeck thats fun to walk around, and they have farmers markets every weekend during the summer. The city is an hour and a half away by train, and most kids go every couple of weekends. It's pretty dead on the weekends other than that (not a great party scene). I like to go hiking in the Catskills, which are an hour north.

    There are a lot of clubs around campus that promote fun based around the culinary environment on top of getting close with the classmates a lot more intimately. The sports and recreation centers are also very reliable for when you want to stay fit, active, and fun. There are also more centers being built on campus to promote more involvement in media and technology towards food to benefit the students also.

    The CIA offers extra curricular activities including sport and clubs. They encourage students to take their extra time to be active in the school life. Clubs at the CIA are unique because they are geared towards culinary. Specific clubs that are offered include wine, beer, mixology, Asia cuisine, and even European cuisine. The multiple campuses of the CIA each individually offer different activities due to the location. For example, the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone located in Saint Helena, California is built on an area with multiple vineyards. Students of legal age are encouraged to go wine tasting. The opportunity is fun and educational .

    I hang out by the river. Joined cross country and hang around the gym. It's easy to make friends if you're willing to just hang out.

    There are a countless number of active clubs on campus, and they all relate to food! Each club has to stay up and running by hosting events to get more interest and every event ends up being one with a lot of great food and great company as well.

    The CIA is an hour and a half train ride to New York City, which is always fun to go for the day. The school is located in Hudson Valley, with plenty of farms to go to and pick fresh produce. The school itself has a variety of clubs, and a rec center to go work out in.
