Well.. if you live in Southern California you’re most likely going to know what I’m talking about, but yeah, you know those commercials of Bryman College? Now (well last month actually) it states that they renamed it to Everest! Why did they do that? Just a question I’m wondering about.
HA ! There was probably some sort of funding involved.
Nothing else has changed, other than the name… so some rich guy probably wanted a college named after himself.
On April 9, 2007, all Bryman College campuses became Everest College.
We offer the same high-quality education—just with a different name.
Bryman College Campus History & Locations
The original Bryman Schools were founded in 1960 by Mrs. Esther Bryman as the Los Angeles Colleges of Medical and Dental Assistants. The Bryman Schools were acquired by National Education Corporation in 1975. In 1983, the school names were changed to National Education Center Bryman Campus.
Although the original Bryman school was opened in 1960, several of the campuses that have been acquired have founding dates that are much older, with one campus dating its founding to 1907.
I just found the following info… so it may have something to do with it :
In April 2005 the college was successfully sued by some of its students at the Tacoma, Washington campus who claimed they did not receive proper training for their careers in medical assistant program, that they were misled about the program’s accreditation status, their eligibility to take a national certification exam, the transferability of their credits and the availability of internships.
