FReX, Neumont’s Freshman Experience weekend for Accepted Students, is slated for March 8-9, 2019, or April 19-20, 2019. FReX is your opportunity to take a test drive of the campus, meet current and future students, and learn more about our five bachelor’s degree programs. Here are the top 10 reasons you should attend FReX this year:
1. FReX IS FOR FRESHMEN. You’ll get to meet and mingle with your future classmates long before school even starts. This is a great way to connect with friends you’ve made on our Discord server and maybe find that perfect roommate.
2. SEE WHAT SLC HAS TO OFFER. Neumont’s campus sits in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City, Utah. Everything a new student needs to survive at college is close by: restaurants, shopping, museums, movie theaters, and concert venues surround the campus. While you’re visiting, you can explore most of these using Utah’s light rail system, TRAX.
3. CHECK OUT THE ACTION. We pride ourselves on our hands-on, project-based learning; now you can see it up close and personal. During your visit current students will demo their project work and see what our students get to create every day.
4. GET TO KNOW CURRENT STUDENTS. Current Neumont students in their natural habitats are an awe-inspiring sight. Visitors will have an opportunity to meet Student Ambassadors and get their questions answered.
5. GAME TIME. Friday night at FReX is a highlight for many Future Neubies. The Student Social brings together all things game – everything from console, to table-top, to RPGs. We provide the food and drinks to keep things rolling, you provide the nimble thumbs and wrists (did we mention billiards and ping pong?).
6. NO CRYSTAL BALL NEEDED. “What’s Neumont really like?” “Will I like it there?” “Is Salt Lake really a decent city?” “Will I meet anybody I’ll like?” FReX is all about getting your questions answered. You can speak to key members of faculty and staff while you’re here, too. Ask them anything! We want to be sure you leave with all the information you need to make the best decision for you.
7. COMPLIMENTARY HOTEL OFFER*. We think you’ll like Neumont so much, we’re willing to give you a place to crash during your visit. We offer our accepted students who are traveling more than 50 miles to attend FReX and their parent(s), guardian(s), or spouse a complimentary room for up to two nights.
8. CHECK OUT THE NEW DIGS. Take a tour of one of our student apartments, meet the Resident Advisors, and ask our Student Affairs team any questions you might have. This is a great way to start planning for what you need to bring (like that top-end espresso machine!).
9. EXPLORE OUR HISTORIC BUILDING. Neumont is housed in a historic, 12-story building that was renovated to meet the needs of our high-tech, modern-learning community. This site used to be a Pony Express stop! And you can still see the original 1924 boilers for the building down in the basement.
10. NEUMONT IS AN EXPERIENCE. Unless you visit, how will you know? We take tremendous pride in our students, our alumni, our faculty, and our staff. We offer an experience that no other school can match. Come and see for yourself!
