Kevin Carman, University of Nevada, Reno provost, discusses how the new NevadaFIT (Freshmen Intensive Training) program helps students succeed in college. He spoke with David Stipech on KUNR's Beyond the Headlines April 18, 2014. 


The weeklong, program will be offered to nearly 500 incoming freshmen for the fall semester 2014, with selected programs in every college at the University of Nevada, Reno. The NevadaFIT "bootcamps" offer a glimpse into the University's rigorous academic expectations and college life prior to the start of the semester. NevadaFIT focuses new college students on academics, study habits and the discipline required for success at the university level. Students are mentored and given the opportunity to get acquainted with professors and college-level testing and projects.


Deadline for applications: June 1, 2014.
