WhY SHOULD I ATTEND FREX?
Would you buy a car without taking it out for a spin? Making big decisions - maybe one of the most important of your life - without thoroughly researching the pros and cons, so you know what to expect, would be a mistake. Experiencing first-hand what it means to be a Neumont student is what FReX is all about. This event lets you experience nearly every aspect of Neumont, including participating in project-based learning, meeting faculty, touring student housing, and learning about Salt Lake City. This way, you and your family can make a well-informed decision.
