FReX is upon us, but to get the most of this epic freshman experience here at Neumont, you’ve got to properly prepare. Don’t worry, we’ve got your back with this helpful FReX checklist for your weekend adventure in Salt Lake City. Follow along for what-to-wear tips, info on the event agenda, and how to get the most out of your FReX experience.
Talk to your parents and get a travel game plan together. Whether you’re getting to FReX by air or car, make your travel plans early to ensure the best pricing and availability. Find out more about how to get to campus here.
Book your complimentary hotel early. If you’ll be traveling more than 50 miles to attend FReX, be sure to book your complimentary hotel stay early. Find all the details, including eligibility, here. You can also review information about hotel check-in/check-out times, amenities, and more by clicking here. (Please note that complimentary parking is provided for all FReX guests.)
Review the FReX agenda: Start getting excited about your Neumont visit by downloading the FReX Program Guide. You’ll find the full event agenda and maps to help familiarize yourself with Salt Lake.
Download the FReX event app: Additionally, we have an event app, which can be downloaded by following the steps below:
From the App Store, search for “Attendify App”.
Download the app and search for “Neumont FReX (April)”
Click “Join” and create your profile.
Connect with other future FReXers on Discord: If you haven’t done so already, check out our Discord server. FReXers can connect on the FReX channel and find out who else will be attending your FReX event date.
Wear comfortable shoes: We promise a fun-filled weekend and recommend wearing comfortable shoes. There will be some light walking as we travel to campus, as well as lots of time on your feet as you explore campus and scheduled activities.
Bring a jacket: Spring time in Salt Lake City is notorious for changing on a dime. Check the weather report before your visit and be prepared for the temperamental temperature shifts.
Prepare a list of questions: Take advantage of this opportunity to get your burning questions about Neumont answered. Work with your parents and come prepared with a list of questions you can ask staff, faculty, and current students. Bonus–this is a great excuse to network.
Avoid the line: If you want to avoid waiting in line for event check-in, plan on showing about halfway through the check-in process. You’ll have plenty of time to get checked-in, grab some breakfast refreshments, and find a seat.
Meet your future friends: Chances are you’re going to make some new friends at FReX, possibly including your future roommate(s). Be sure to wear your FReX name badge (you’ll receive one at event check-in) so everyone can learn your name.
Experience TRAX: FReX attendees will be provided a UTA pass to use on Saturday, April 19th to experience TRAX, Salt Lake City’s light rail system. We recommend utilizing the TRAX to explore downtown and you can see the schedule and stop locations here.
Participate in all the activities: To know what’s going on at all times, download the Attendify app from the app store. From there, you’ll be able to review the FReX Agenda Program Guide. Lastly, don’t forget to post your FReX pics to the social media feed on Attendify and hashtag #FReX in your posts on social media.
