Students live, learn and earn in a magical setting
Disney College Program seeks candidates for internships of a lifetime.
The Disney College Program gives students the chance to live, learn and earn at the Disneyland® Resort or Walt Disney World® Resort in a paid internship for a world-renowned company that will stand out on their résumé.
Recruiters from the Disney College Program will host presentations for interested area college students on Oct. 15 at noon, with an additional presentation at 5 p.m., in Room 104 of the Setzer Student Center at Lamar University.
Participants have the unique opportunity to network and learn from Disney leaders; custom-design their own learning curriculum and possibly earn college credit; gain real-world experience and transferable skills while working in the Disney theme parks and resorts and create lasting friendships with college students from around the world while living in fully furnished apartments that include a variety of amenities.
Participants in the Disney College Program also have the opportunity to take a variety of course offerings including collegiate courses that have been recommended for credit by the American Council on Education (ACE). Even the work component of the internship has been recommended for credit by ACE. Students should check with their career services advisor to determine whether their institution will offer credit for participation.
“The Disney College Program opened a lot of doors for me,” said Director of Walt Disney World Casting Jody Sweet, who interned as a Merchandise Hostess at Epcot® while a student at Bowling Green State University. “On a daily basis, I was exposed to the intricacies of upper-level management, problem-solving techniques and the importance of customer service.”
The Disney College Program is open to all college students, full or part-time, in any major and at any academic level. Students must have been enrolled in an accredited college or university the semester prior to arrival, and must be at least 18 years of age at the time of arrival.
