NevadaFIT camps

All incoming freshmen from all majors are welcome to attend. The College of Science, the College of Agriculture, Biotechnology and Natural Resources, the College of Education, the College of Engineering, and the College of Business have made the program mandatory for all incoming students for NevadaFIT 2019. All students with a declared major in these five colleges will be auto-enrolled in NevadaFIT, no need to apply. All other majors must apply.

Camps have capacities, and students must officially be accepted into the program to attend. NevadaFIT is intended for all incoming freshmen, regardless of academic credentials. In 2018, NevadaFIT had 1,620 participants, and we expect to have almost 2,600 in 2019. Each college on campus runs its own bootcamp, and there are eight total camps:

"Doing NevadaFIT was the best thing I could've done to prepare me for freshman year. Not only did I get a sneak peek at what a rigorous college class is like, but I also made friends that I still talk to today. It was a great way to familiarize myself with the campus and different teachers, it's an opportunity everyone should take advantage of."
