"I'm taking the Graphic Design & Animations course at the Parsippany campus. About 8 or 10 months ago I thought about "dropping out", but didn't because I'm not a quitter. Big mistake!! I'm almost at the end of this course and sometimes wish that I DID quit. From almost the very beginning of school there have been A LOT of problems. Student ID's need to be re-set, the school gets new computers that aren't any better than the first ones. You still have your class pets, and you can't even ask the instructor a question because they will embarass you in front of everyone. They do treat you like you're a child, and they do seem to think that the school is just like social hour.One of them had the cops at the school a bunch of times for dumb things that he did while teaching. Even if you complain to someone higher up nothing gets done. It's hard to tell if anyone there knows what they're doing. I don't know anything about the other campuses, but don't go to the Parsippany one. I don't even know what I learned if anything. I think that it's a big waste of money and there are better schools out there. I wish that I went to one of them instead."

"Anthem is not a good school at all .. iam still in anthem and 30 students complain and they havent solve anything. No teachers in the school, we only have 1 teacher for graphic design and we dont learn anything he dosent know what is he is talkin about he only reads from the book . when we complain they always have the same answer and it's "We are tying to build the school as before" and i told the manager of the school "what about if i failed" he said we wont let you fail.. i asked again i am saying IF and he answers back "you will not fail" so what that means is that they dont really care about the stduents they just want to get the money from you.I waste my time writing this because i feel bad for myself and i dont want someone else to be in the same situation. I am at anthem institution in north brunswick ."

Certified Medical Assistant!! - 6/17/2009
Degree:
Graduation Year:
"I wanted a successful career in the healthcare field and that is exactly what I got. I recently graduated from the Cherry Hill campus and I have already started to received tuition reimbursement from the hospital i work at to go back and get my R.N. If you apply yourself and work with the the different departments they make available for you, you can definately get a good job in your career field. I loved my experience there. The teachers were great, the labs were fun and the environment was very nice. I would reccommend anyone to the Cherry Hill campus for any of their programs, especially Medical Assistant!"

Former Student - 2/3/2009
Degree:
Graduation Year:
"Two years and $18,000 - gone. My "instruction" consisted of either a teacher reading verbatim from a book or telling us to "play with" the program so we could get used to the tools. Then we would be assigned a project while the teacher usually sat behind his/her desk and worked on a personal project (probably for paying clients) or checked emails. I had one teacher who watched movies at his desk! When anyone complained to John he did NOTHING about it. Now I'm in debt and still not qualified to work as a graphic designer.Save yourself time and money - DO NOT GO TO ANTHEM INSTITUTE. You'd be better off buying the program and teaching yourself how to use it."
