We're getting ready for all things FReX, and we can't wait to get to know you!
Students who are considering attending Neumont this fall are strongly encouraged to register for our Accepted Student Weekend right away at accepted.neumont.edu. (If you are not yet accepted for the fall, go ahead and submit your Application for Admission at www.neumont.edu/apply to receive your admission decision and FReX invitation as soon as possible.)
FReX is designed to help you get to know Neumont from our curriculum to our culture. That's why you and your parent(s)/guardian(s) or spouse are invited to join us for presentations, team-building activities, project demonstrations, an alumnus interview, a gaming night, and more. Check out the complete FReX schedule at www.neumont.edu/frex.
At Neumont College of Computer Science, we're all about technology, and you can see that obsession in our agenda for this event. Things kick off at The Little America Hotel with a presentation from President Aaron Reed, Ed.D., as he shares what makes Neumont different from a traditional college. (Hint: We spend a lot more time doing and a lot less time talking.)
After a few more quick presentations, it's time for lunch while Manager of Academic Systems Jeremiah Harrison chats with Neumont Alum and Googler Glen Watson. A 2012 graduate, Glen currently works on the front-end of Google's Play Store App at their California offices. He'll share his post-Neumont career journey including a stop at Indeed.com as well as answer questions about his Neumont experience.
In the afternoon, all visitors are encouraged to explore Neumont's campus and participate in activities like an engineering challenge, a tech hardware giveaway, student project demonstrations, and meet and greets with faculty, staff, and alumni.
We'll take a short break from the madness to prep campus for Nacho Average Game Night. At this epic event of all things game, current students and future students will go to know each other during a Super Smash Bros tournament and over games like:
- Rocket League
- Magic The Gathering
- One Night: Ultimate Werewolf Game
- Ping Pong
Register for the Super Smash Bros tournament using your real name to ensure you are notified when it is your turn to play. While students are gaming, parents and guardians are invited to a small social at The Little America Hotel to enjoy a complimentary drink as they get to know one another.
The event wraps up on Saturday morning with scheduled tours of Neumont's student housing at The Essex and The Mercer Downtown in Salt Lake City. All visitors will be given a UTA TRAX pass to take the Red Line from Courthouse Station (500 South) to Trolley Station (700 East) to see the apartment complex at the student's assigned time.
