    I came to Fortis because I felt very welcome as I walked into the building, because I did go tour another college but I didn’t feel welcome. I chose Fortis because I felt very welcome by the staff here.

    FORTIS-ERIE prepared me to be successful with their “learn by doing” approach to gaining the skills and attributes needed in my chosen career field. My instructors and the Career Services Team made sure that I was ready for that interview and ready to be hired.

    I chose to attend Fortis with the notion at the time that I didn’t know what I wanted to do. When I walked into the pharmacy area I just totally fell in love with it and I just went from there, it’s just amazing.The education I received here has helped me tremendously.

    I had just finished high school; I moved back about six months after I graduated and I was looking for a job, looking for something to get into and that’s when a friend of mine recommended this school. What I’m doing now is I am a professional massage therapist. I’m a licensed massage therapist. I’ve been doing it for almost three years now.
