I really didn't expect to be going back to school at age 51, but I have to say even though it has been a lot of work, I have found it to be very rewarding. The school is very personable and the instructors are really willing to help you out with whatever you need. They seem to want to see you succeed as much as you do.
There are dozens of computers available for use. Each lab has at least one printer available. There is no page limit for printing and it is free to print. The network usually runs well, and they will notify the campus of any scheduled network maintenance. The wireless is not currently available but they are working on resolving the issue. You will not need a personal printer unless you want to print in color. The internet speed is probably average for a campus network.

I am a nursing major and the workload can be very demanding. i usually get studying done at night and get ready for the next day. I am very big into working out and sports, as well are my children. Our schedule has to have routine or there is much chaos to deal with. The course at Fortis has helped me to maintain my chaos and works around it!
