“You are important to us and we value your commitment and drive to succeed in these tough times. We are here with you every step of the way. Your trust in us means a lot. Keep working hard! You will get through this!” – Hamsha M.
“I am so proud of how well everyone has quickly adjusted and learned the new platform. There were a few kinks at first, but by the amazing support from administration and IT, we have been able to move forward with learning rather seamlessly. This just shows the caliber and dedication of the students at Anderson College. Together we have found a way to overcome adversity, and I have no doubt that we will continue to be successful on our journey together. Until we can be together again in person and in the lab, I look forward to hearing all of your voices and watching you grow throughout this process. Keep up the amazing work!” – Sasha G.

You have remained calm, professional, and have been so productive these last few weeks. This behaviour is exactly what health care facilities look for in a medical office assistant. Your instructor cannot be more pleased. Well done. Like all of you, I miss seeing each one of you, and can’t wait to return to our classroom. Stay safe, stay healthy, and remember – we are all in this together!!!! Miss Barb.” – Barbara O.
