WhY SHOULD I ATTEND FREX?
There are so many reasons! But we’ve captured the most important reason here on our Top Ten Reasons to Attend FReX list.
What is FReX?
FReX is short for Freshman Experience, an exclusive event we hold in the spring for accepted students and their parents or guardians.
What happens at FReX?
FReX is designed to give you and your parents a clear idea of what life as a Neumont student will be like. That's why you'll watch students demonstrate projects, hear from staff and faculty, tour student housing, and hang out with other students. By the end of the weekend, you’ll know if Neumont is right for you.
What will the weather be like?
Spring time in Salt Lake City is beautiful, with a shift to warmer temperatures. The average high for early April is between 58 and 60 degrees. Keep an eye on the weather report and plan to bring weather-appropriate gear, including a light jacket and comfortable walking shoes.
When is FReX?
FReX will be held on April 6 - 7, 2018. The event will begin at 9:00 a.m. on Friday, April 6, and will wrap up by mid-day on Saturday, April 7.

What’s the best way to get around at FReX?
Visitors traveling to FReX will find there is no need to rent a car for their visit, as the Utah Transit Authority TRAX light rail system is convenient and affordable. There will be some light walking during the event, so please come prepared with sturdy shoes and weather-appropriate gear. Details on transportation options are below:
Public transportation: The Utah Transit Authority TRAX light rail system connects the Salt Lake City International Airport to downtown Salt Lake City and its surrounding suburbs. Schedules and fare information for the Green Line/Route 704 are available on the UTA website. The Little America Hotel is located by the Courthouse stop; the Neumont campus is a short walk from the City Center stop

How do I take advantage of the complimentary hotel room offer?
Students accepted for the fall of 2018 and their parents and guardians will qualify for a complimentary hotel room for up to two nights at a hotel of Neumont’s choice. Any additional guests, as well as amenities or additional charges, will be at the expense of the visiting family. If you choose to stay beyond these days, you may do so at your own expense and at the discounted Neumont corporate rate.
To take advantage of this offer, you’ll need to book your hotel stay by following the link you received in a confirmation email. You will need a valid credit card number to secure your room. Neumont will cover the cost for one, double-occupancy room for up to two nights (Thursday – Friday). Any additional expenses will be charged to the provided credit card.
