Now area college students will have the opportunity to speak with a Disney College Program recruiter on Monday, March 14 at 4:00 p.m. in the Gamecock Room, Stephenson Hall to create their own career-building opportunity.

While on the Disney College Program, students embark into a learning laboratory that includes opportunities to network and learn from Disney leaders, gain real-world experience working in our Theme Parks and Resorts, and create lasting friendships with college students from around the nation and the world.

In addition to their roles, students have the opportunity to network with leaders throughout the Walt Disney World Co. by participating in on-property and Disney College Program exclusive networking events.
