I'm Suzi, 19, studying music at the University of Southampton, in the south of England, but originally from London.

I'm a big Disney nut (although that probably goes without saying, what with me posting on a board for college-age Disney fans. But I digress :rolleyes: ), particularly the animated films (I'm the only person I've ever met who cries EVERY TIME at the end of Beauty and the Beast :rolleyes: ). I've been to WDW 3 times, DLP a whole lot more, and I'm planning my first ever trip to DL for next March.

I'm a major film buff, and love just about any kind of music.

'Twould be nice to hear from everyone else here, find out who everyone is! :)

I'm Mayleen, 21, studying biomedical sciences at the Interamerican University in Puerto Rico. This will be my last semester.

I'm another disney nut. Have gone to WDW about 9 times. Was going to be on the CP(fall 2003), but because of personal issues and school, couldn't go. :guilty:

Love music, almost any type. Watch way to much tv.

Hola all, names Chad( :D )

I'm just your average 20 year old Disney/motorcycle enthusiasts working on my second year at the University of North Texas(Denton, Texas) towards a masters in accounting.

I've been going to Disney World since I was an infant with my parents and had my first solo experience not too long ago. :cool1:

Howdy.. I'm Roman. I just turned 26, so technically I'm a grown up now.

I don't go to college any more, but I did graduate from The College of New Jersey, and I am currently a full time employee there... does that count?

Anyway, I did the Disney College Program a long time ago! (Spring 99!) And would be happy to answer any questions or chat with anyone who is interested in the CP.

Hi all! My name is Traci. I graduated from Stockton College (NJ) in May and am currently a part time banquet server. I was supposed to do the college program this past fall but for personal reasons, could not go. I was disappointed, but everything happens for a reason, you know?

My next trip to Disney is in April to see my little sister's marching band in the parade at Magic Kingdom.

Hi! I guess I'm a grown-up like Roman. But, I'm going back to school! I'm 26, got my undergraduate degree in Business Administration - Marketing from Colorado State University. I've just started working on my MBA with a conc. in Accounting.

I did the College Program in Fall 2000. And it was the best semester I've ever had!!! I'd love to chat or answer questions about my program. I'm sure it's changed a little by now though.

I worked at MGM in merchandise around the main entrance (Oscar's, Crossroads, Sid's, Package Pickup, etc). I loved it!!! I met my DH that semester, and we hope to move back there in a couple of years when we are both done (or at least he's done) with school.

Hi, I'm Sarah. :) I'm 23 and just graduated from Clarion University of Pennsylvania a couple of days ago. Now I'm unemployed and desparately searching for a job in public relations or development.

I got engaged in Disneyworld (behind Cinderella's Castle) on Dec. 16, 2003. We're getting married on June 17, 2006 but not at Disney. I'm certainly getting Disney involved in the wedding! Mickey and Minnie are already our caketopper! :)

I'm (shocked face!) in love with all things Disney. Other people call it a sick obsession, people on the DIS call it normal. ;) I have a dance minor, I'm auditioning for a dance team in Pittsburgh soon, I'm a sister of Phi Sigma Sigma, I love Colin Firth... hmm... I'm sure there's lots of other random things. For now, hi to everyone!! :)

I'm Brad, a 20 year old management student from Rutgers U. in New Brunswick, NJ. I've wanted to do the CP but it doesn't work out well with the program I am in at Rutgers. Oh well, I guess I'll have to settle for the occasional trip down and who knows what'll happen after graduation...

I'm Eric, 22, recent alumnus of Syracuse University, grew up in Ann Arbor Michigan (Go Blue!), and as of 11am today, am no longer doing the WDWCP.

However, I'm staying in Orlando, and as of tomorrow (or possibly next week, not sure when the computer change will take effect), I'll be a part time (CR for those who understand the abbreviations) Disney Cast Member. I've put in an application for FT, and am waiting to hear from Casting about that.

In my free time, I'm a huge computer nerd, plus a hockey fan, and my claim to fame is that in the past 4 years, I've travelled well over 15,000 miles just to watch various hockey games (over 25,000 if you count a hockey team trip to Europe this past summer). I also like listening to music, hanging out with friends, and (of course), Walt Disney World. (any or all of these could be combined as needed ;))

I'm with ya and the hockey i love going to hockey games ( not totally versed in all that everything means but im getting the hang of it) its a bummer that the NHL isnt playing this season i was going to try and go to a bruins game for the first time normally i just go to college games

I'm Jillian, 18 (soon to be 19 in a little over 2 months) I go to Community College for Business Management and want to go to Point Park for Sports Management afterwards.

I'm a big disney and sports fanatic. I love Baseball and Wrestling. My favorite sports team if you can't tell by my info is the Pittsburgh Pirates. My favorite things Disney are the Lion King Trilogy and Peter Pan. I've been to Disney I don't know how many times and I love their shows, especially the Festival of the Lion King and Tarzan Rocks.

~Jill

For the time being, I'm staying in my same location. However, I applied for FT in 4 areas, none of which is the one I'm in currently.

College Hockey is my game ... the NHL is fun, but it's too expensive for me. Between college puck and juniors and minor leagues, I can usually get my hockey fix ... it's difficult to do down here, but that doesn't stop me from trying.

01-05-2005, 08:29 PM
ive never been to an NHL game but i work in the city and my train stops right at the fleetcenter where the bruins play so my friend and i who also works with me wanted to try and get to at least one game this season but alas this didnt work out... i would have loved to play hockey but i busted my knee and cant even skate anymore it hurts to much and im still learning the game i grew up in a house were sports werent a big thing so im figuring it out on my own now i mainly just go to college games since its only like 10 bucks a game for me

I'm also really, really grown up. :D

I'm 37 and I am slowly, but surely finishing my bachelor's at a public university here in Virginia - I have stalkers (yikes) so I keep the name mum. I have about 24 classes to go. I plan to eventually make it to the College of William and Mary to attend law school or earn my MBA.

I've previously attended U of WA (go huskies!), Seattle U, and William and Mary for some courses. That is what happens when you change your major 4 times, get married and have kids (I have 4 with one on the way), move around a lot because of my hubby's lucrative career, and live too comfortably in the suburbs. lol

BTW my hubby lives and works in NY for now (he's a contract design engineer - a "jobshopper") and I stay put to finish school. We're strange that way, though, as we have lived this lifestyle since 1998.

Hi, I'm Corey. I am 23, married, no children. Currently I am a graduate student at Portland State University in Oregon working on my MA in Technical Writing. I also recieved my BA from PSU in June of 2004.

Like Sarah on pg 1, I am a phi sig... now I am an advisor for our chapter and am working to get our alumnae chapter up and running. So, I am still a kid! I get to hang out with all the ladies all the time and act like a crazy college student.

My DH and I had never been to Disney World before our honeymoon last september. We had to delay the honeymoon over a year so that we had the money to go all out (since we bought a house too). It was amazing. Now we are going back again in September. We were planning the trip before we even left Disney! I think "adicted" sums it up.

I have always been a disney baby. My grandparents live in Santa Ana, about 10 minutes away from Disneyland and I grew up in Riverside about an hour away. We always had season passes and were always there. Now, I am not sure I could go back to Disneyland (unless as a starter trip with kids) just because Disney World is so amazing.

Oh, and I can be long winded!

I am new here (well, new at posting things). My name is Kyle. I'm a senior at University of Montevallo (http://www.montevallo.edu/) (a small college close to Birmingham, Alabama) about to graduate with a BBA in Management in May. As of right now I don't know of my plans immediately following (as far as a job). If you would like to assist in that endeavor, I would be more than glad to let you.

As for very immediate plans, I'll be headed down to the World after I graduate!!! Graduation is on May 7th; pure enjoyment begins May 8.

I love Disney, music, movies, chatting, and reading (other material than a textbook, preferably). I also play piano, which offers a lot of enjoyment.

AH! I get busy for a semester and the DIS starts a college board?? I missed this! I'm a 20 year old in a month who goes to Gettysburg College, an English major, just don't ask what I plan on doing with that degree :rolleyes:

I've been going to Disney World since I was 2 and have been around 10 ten times over the years. I adore it, I can always be eight years old there! So exicited there's finally a board for other college kids around here :D

Woah, weird! I live in Hanover, Pa!! Like 20 minutes from Gettysburg...

Anyway, I'm Lindsey, a freshman at McDaniel College in Maryland (the school changed there name.. before it was Western Maryland College so you may know it). I am majoring in Chemistry, minor in forensics. Pledging Phi Sigma Sigma :bitelip:. I surf, dance, and run. That's about it! :blush:
My family is nuts about Disney. We have a Christmas tree dedicated to it.. a wall in our house dedicated to it... and our kitched is pretty Disney'ed out too. We're a crazy bunch :D . I am going to be in Disney over Spring Break with my friends and I'll be back in May.

My name's Mallory. I'm a freshman at Rider University in NJ. Elementary Education/Psychology double major with a minor in Special Education. I've been a huge Disney fan my whole life. Have gone to WDW over 18 times now, and DL once with my high school. My whole family is disney crazy. I worked at the Disney Store around home for a few months but that didn't work out too well with my hs schedule.
I don't know much about the CP program, but it's sounds pretty cool. Anyone able to tell me more about it??

Hi everyone!

I'm Carrie, I'm 18, and I am a first year at UCLA, majoring in history and minoring in political science. I am resuming posting on these boards after a pretty long break, and looking forward to getting back into it! I am from Orange County, CA so I grew up going to Disneyland pretty much at least once a month, and have been to WDW 5 times (my next planned trip isn't until 2006 sadly.) I have been to DLP once and am planning on going back sometime between August and December (I am studying in London this autumn and really looking forward to it!!) Oh, and I am hopefully spending this summer working at the Disneyland Resort. :-) Looking forward to meeting everyone (and saying hi to some old friends!)

Pigsoldier, where abouts in London are you? We should have a meet up when supercarrie comes over. We can sit in a pub with mickey mouse ears on :earsboy: (and yet we won't be the wierdest ones in there - one thing I love about London there's always someone freakier than you! :crazy: )

Lets see where should I begin. I am a 21 year old NYU student majoring in
Early Childhood/ Special Education. I am double majoring in Psychology. I am
hoping to be teaching in one of the NYC public schools one day, educating young minds while they are still young and innocent. I am planning to integrate my love for Disney in my classroom. I am also interested in obtaining a graduate degree in psychology. I think I am most interested in eventually becomming a child psychologist in an educational environment, but I change my mind all the time.

After attending 4 different colleges and majoring in everything, I really
mean everything, ( I went from Pre Med Bio student to Classics major, to nursing student, to psycho bio major, and considered almost everything else) I really feel that education is what I truly want to do with my life. Right now I spend most of my free time observing students, tutoring and student teaching, while doing the one thing I do best, studying. I also work a few days a week assisting in a dental office which I hate. Sucking saliva and blood out of peoples mouths isn't the most glamorous job in the world, but thats where I learned my obsession with in office teeth whitening.

I have a weird obsession with collecting Disney Tote bags. I manage to bring
home a few each time I go to WDW. I hate using back packs and small purses so I use tote bags for almost everything. I love the new beaded movie scene ones, and I am desperately surching for the turquoise Ariel one.

I also collect Lithographs so I have managed to pre order multiple copies of
every movie so far that come with lithographs. So maybe thats the reason why I have 6 copies of Finding Nemo laying around.

I was a TDS CM from October 2001- January 2004 (sniff) I started my journey at 5th Ave and ended it at the store at ABC studios upon its closure. I will always cherish my time as a CM and never forget the wonderful people I've met, the great experiences, and how much it added to my Disney obsession. Even though there were some things that have upset me (World of Disney casting) I will always have a place for Disney in my heart.

Well, my name is Ryan, I'm 21 and studying Sport Marketing at Columbia College Chicago. But, that's not the stuff that matters, right? I am a former CP from the Spring Advantage 2003, (Apt 805). Easily the best 7 months of my life. Plenty of good has come since I've been back, (I've finished my first degree and met my girlfriend of 1 year now) but nothing can quite compare to living and breathing Walt Disney World. I just bought my girlfriend a trip to WDW for her 21st Birthday because she's never gone and I want her to see what I see, and truely understand my almost sickening obsession with the Mouse... We'll be there June 5th - 11th and I can't wait...

Nice to meet you all, and I look forward to having just one more reason to not do homework and get back into my Disney state-of-mind.

I've been to WDW 10 times, DL once, and I am going to WDW in June with my boyfriend! I wanted him to know what it's really like, to experience things the way I have, and to know what it's like to be in a place where everyone is equal and everything is just so magical!
I digress...I am really excited to be a part of these boards and share my opinions with others. I am always willing to talk to people, especially about Disney! :mickeybar

Now for some questions from evey one who has gone:

2 - I am a Big coffee drinker, do they have a coffee pot there?

3 - anything you think I should know?

Well that is all for now, look forward to meeting anyone going down :teeth:

I'm from CT originally (up where the seasons actually change every few months!). And if it weren't for me being only an hour and change from WDW, I'd probably hate being here entirely. I'm a huuuuuge Disney nut, and I go all the time (every couple weeks while I'm down here). I'm looking forward to meeting and getting to know some of you and chattin Disney and stuff!

I love college and all that good stuff but more importantly, I will be working at Disney a little over a year from now.

I've previously attended U of WA (go huskies!), Seattle U, and William and Mary for some courses.

Good luck with your law school plans! W&M is where I am now and have been for the past 4 years of undergrad; I graduate on Sunday. As you prob. already know, it's a lot of work and it can be insanely stressful, but it's worth it in the end (if you can handle the pressure, that is; I know people who had to transfer out because it was too much). Nothing quite like going to a school that's over 300 years old and thinking about all the Presidents and leaders who studied there. Hope you get in! :goodvibes

I attend the University of Central Florida and am a Creative Writing major, hopefully graduating in the spring of next year. Aside from Disney, I'm a huge Harry Potter fan, anime fanatic, orca lover, avid reader/writer, and artist ^^

I'm looking forward to chatting with y'all - if you have a LJ, pop by mine at http://www.livejournal.com/users/orcapotter

Hi Orca! Welcome! How do you like UCF? I'm looking at going there for grad school next year and will be in the English department!

Thanks for the welcome! ^_^ Well, in all honesty, UCF can be quite a pain when it comes to technical matters. I've had a lot of grief with issues, and it's hard to find people who actually *know* anything about anything. You go to one department, and they direct you to another, only to be turned around again. The English Department is a bit better than others, though, which is why I've switched back again after having changed to Graphic Design (which just wasn't working).

The grad program I hear is very good - good luck with it! :cheer2:

Hi, I'm Heather. I'm 18 and I'll start my first year at the University of NH in August. I'm undeclared, though I'm beginning to lead toward something in Health and Human Services, quite possibly communication sciences and disorders. I've been on the DIS for a little over a year now, but figured I'd introduce myself over here, since I'll be in college pretty soon. I'm a huge Disney fan.

Hey everyone! :wave: I'm Melissa, I'm 20 and I go to Pace University in Pleasantville, NY (Yes, it's really called Pleasantville! No one believes me that it's a real place!). I'm a childhood education major and, to quote my sister, "I love little kids! They're so stupid!" No, lol, not really, but I do love little kids!

Let's see what else. Oh, ok, in addition to being a Disney addict, I'm also a huge Bon Jovi fan. And every summer, our trip to Disney is my reason for being. I work to earn money to buy stuff when I'm there. Like this summer, we're going out to Disneyland for a few days, then heading on the West Coast cruise, coming home, and the very next day, heading to Disney World. I'd call that addicted! :earboy2:

Anyway, that's about it. I finally found a place to meet other Disney crazy people, hooray! ::MinnieMo

I've posted on just about every Disney message board at some point or another and try to get to Anaheim twice a year.

There are girls who are crazy about sports)! My dream job would be an ESPN reporter... or whatever really! Anyway, I'm going to be at Disney World August 21st for a week. (I've been going there since I was 3 years old... thats just how much my family and I love it!)

Hi, I'm Mary! I'm 19 and I'm a sophomore at Belmont University- studying International Business. I absolutely love Disney- my family is currently planning our 8th trip this New Year's. I play in the band, and one of my favorite trips was when my high school did the Magic Music Days over Spring Break one year. I applied for the college program last semester and got accepted, but decided not to go just yet. I march with Vanderbilt and didn't want to miss marching season, so hopefully, I can intern the Spring of 2007! :earboy2:

Where are all the college students around here? Too busy studying?

Anyway, I'm studying at Kennesaw State Uni in Georgia. Pretty cultureless place, I have to say, but it's close by so that's the easiest thing about it. Would have been nice to go to UGA with all those bars right next door. I've been to WDW three times now thanks to my wife and her family's obsession with the place.

I LOVE DISNEY. . . everything about it!! I'm going to WDW for my 21st birthday this November. I can't wait! Everyone around me thinks that I'm crazy for loving Disney at much as I do, but it's reassuring that there are others that feel the same :flower:

I'm hoping to move to Orlando, within the next year. I'm majoring in Communications/Public Relations. My dream is to one day work for Disney on the corporate level. I love Disney World. I've been there a total of 27 times since I was born (every year at least once), and I've been to Disneyland once (long time ago before California Adventure :guilty: ).

I highly recomend for anyone interested). I am going into my 2nd year at Montclair. I hope to return to Disney for another internship within a couple of years.

But that's a few years off. As I'll probably go straight to grad school. I love WDW and love that I'm now only about 45 minutes away. I visit as often as I can it's definitely a plus. I've visited too many times to count but I average two trips per year.

Hi everyone! I'm Jen, 21 years old, and I'm finishing up my last year at the University of Winnipeg, majoring in math.

I'm a huge disney nut. Have been there 5 times so far, my most recent was at the end of August. Spent a week at the Disney Boardwalk Villas (parents are DVC members! yay!). And I have to say, it was awesome being 21 there because I got to go to Jellyrolls! It's so awesome there and being on the Boardwalk, it was extremely convenient. I'm hoping to be back there in December 2006 (seems so far away!) to enjoy a Disney Christmas, hopefully I'll cope without the snow.

Anyways, I look forward to chatting with all of you and getting to know you guys. Hopefully sharing some Disney experiences too! Later guys! :earsgirl:

Guess I might as well say something, My name is Ted, I'm 2nd year student at Cal Poly: San Luis Obispo (halfway between San Francisco and LA, on the coast) I am a biology major with no real goals right now other than just having fun at college and enjoying the experience. I am a huge disney fan though, but Ive only been to Disney World twice and Disneyland a handful of times. Doesn't matter though, it will never get old and it kicks ***. My roommates think my disney habit is a bit strange but girls think its cute so no big deal. Um, I love facebook, http://calpoly.facebook.com/profile.php?id=6401654. Philly cheesesteaks and baseball also.

Hi Everyone! I'm new to the disboards. I'm 21 and a senior at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. I am majoring in English (emph on Creative Writing) and History. I plan to study Professional Writing in grad school next year. Of course...I love all things Disney! I've been there six times, the last being spring break during March '05. I think I love DW now even more than I did when I was a kid! I turned 21 in July, and my mom was going to give me a trip to Vegas as a gift. I was excited about Vegas, but I was unknowingly saying all the time about how much I missed Disney! In August, my mom surprised me and said I could have a trip to Disney instead of Vegas. So..my mom, my wonderful bf, and myself booked a trip for January 06. Even more fun...my two best friends from high school thought our trip sounded so fun that they booked too! So...that's my disney story thus far.

Hey everybody. I'm glad I found this site, it seems like a great place to discuss Disney and college program related stuff. I attended the Spring 2004 program in a custodial role at the Magic Kingdom. It was the best time of my life. Since Ive been home, I couldnt wait to return to my home away from home- Florida. I will be interviewing for another college program this coming tuesday the 1st of November. Wish me luck. I am hoping to take part in an operations role this time around. I cant wait to go back and make some more great memories there. It wont be the same, but I dont expect it to be. It will be another great experience all in itself. Hey everybody

HI :flower:

My name is Neeraja. I'm 19 years old and I live in Michigan, where, unfortunately, it is too freeeezing for my taste right now. :cold: I will be a Merchandise CP Jan 9 -May 12 2006, and I am extremely excited about that! I've been to Disney World 10 times, Disneyland 5 times, and my next goal is Tokyo Disney Sea. I tend to become very emotional every time a Disney World commercial is on TV...I can't help it, lol. My favorite rides include Spaceship Earth and Splash Mountain, but the list doesn't end there. I speak Telugu, German and Spanish, so maybe I'll get one of those little language pins some CMs have on their name tags. I am addicted to shopping (purses, shoes and sweaters are at the top of the list) and the television show The Golden Girls. :rotfl:

I love languages and I speak French and some Italian and even took a chance at Russian this semester (which was a mistake). I love going out, cooking, Family Guy, Arrested Development and House. And of course I love Disney World more than like anything, oh god, to be on PoTC right now....sigh....

My sister and I will discuss this show to no end...often times with me hailing JT/Lib as the show's best couple EVER. You're a Craig lover? Nice :) Haven't seen much of him yet this season, but he's got a storyline coming up soon...something about him getting a record deal. Personally, Jimmy is my favorite :love: I'm excited for tonight's episode...it's dealing more with the Friendship Club and Darcy.

Anyway, I don't want to bore the other Disboarder's with this, so if I want to tell you something about the show, I'll just send you a PM. :)

All you CPs should check it out when they offer cheaper tickets for cast members. Anyway, after disney I worked at Chilis for a couple months, and then learned of some openings as servers at Disney. I applied, got hired, and have been loving in ever since. Lets just say I make in one night about twice what my average CP pay check was. :cool1:

I have been to WDW, DL, and DLP. I have been to DLP more times than I've been to DL and WDW combined! (I lived in Belgium for 2 years, so that kinda helped) I have applied and interviewed for the Fall 06 program. I am hoping to hear back in a week or so.

I love music and I love driving around on warm sunny days with my windows rolled down. I also love thunderstorms, and meeting new people (preferrably not meeting new people in thunderstorms, though :cool:

Oh, and consider this fair warning that I love emoticons so you will probably see a lot of my posts with at least one. :)

I think You have to be 18 when you start working and be a full time student college/university student at the time you are applying.

But, I know there is a High school summer program.

Go to yahoo, enter Disney Career Start Program, and you should find the website. Just check it out and you might be able to do it this summer.

Good luck on that, and hope to see you down there

I'm done a few posts on here before, but I thought I might as well introduce myself since I'm done with school and I'm bored.

My name is Kristen, I'm 22 years old and I just graduated from the University of Illinois - Champaign. I just received my Bachelor's degree in Spanish and International Studies. I orignally did a CP in 2003 but I'm coming down on June 14th for a Professional Internship with Guest Relations at the Magic Kingdom. I will also be living at Northbrdige apartments which are the PI Disney apartments. :teeth: I can't wait to be down in Florida again! :sunny:

CP - 2003 Full Service Food and Beverage @ Fort Wilderness
PI - 2006 Guest Relations @ Magic Kingdom
(And hopefully a career with disney in the future!)

Hey everybody

I'm Kristen and I graduated last year but close enough to the college crowd. I just joined the board so I'm not exactly sure what I'm doing yet... But I was a American Studies and Government double major at Skidmore College. I wrote my American Studies senior honors thesis on Disney World! It was primarily about the American Adventure and the Hall of Presidents and how Disney represents American history and culture through those attractions. I also wrote about Disney's impact on American culture. It was pretty awesome plus my school gave me money to go to WDW to do research!! Anyway... just wanted to introduce myself. Take it easy everybody

I'm originally from Auburn, WA (Go Cougars! Sorry I'm a WSU Fan!) but moved to Boise, ID for school and plan to stay here. I was on the college program Jan 04-Aug 04. I'm a Communication Mass Media Major with a Marketing minor here at BSU. I also work at KBCI-TV and 98 KQFC. So it's great working in a industry you want to get into later in life! I've been a lurker for awhile now, but I'll be spending more time on here b/c I get bored at work and there's a computer in front of me and I have nothing to do :). I'm also a WDWCP Campus Rep for Boise State University!

Glad to meet everyone on here!

My name is Kaitlin. I just finished my freshman year. I am a psychology major.
I love Disney and have more than a dozen WDW trips under my belt (family disagrees on exactly how many ;) ). I hope I have time to do the WDW college program at some point.

After I graduate, I would like to work with kids and teens in the hospital as a Child Life Specialist. Child Life Specialists try to make a stay in the hospital as normal as possible. They do this by providing crafts, games, therapeutic play, special events, and other fun activities.

I hope to learn more about all things Disney here, including the College Program.
Take care,
Kaitlin

Hello!
I'm Jenn, just about 18 and will be attending West Valley Community College. I used to live in St. Augustine, FL but moved out to California so I've been missing good ol' Disney. This summer, though, I'm going back with a friend to enjoy a week away from everything and live it up at AKL... so that's exciting.

I really enjoy photography; a lomo fanatic. I collect records and vinyl toys and I like refurbished typewriters. I enjoy really quirky movies and am open to all kinds of music. I also refuse to rid myself of my N64.

I'm definitely going to do the CP at some point...either 2nd semester of Freshman year or either semester in Sophomore year. I don't want to wait too long, plus I'll probably be spending at least part of my Junior year in France.

My name is Stephanie. I'm a 20 year old student at University of Southern Indiana (in Evansville, Indiana), eagerly awaiting my 21st birthday. I'm engaged to my boyfriend of six years. We met while both of us were in our high school marching band. We don't have a date set, but we're thinking of getting married either next summer or the summer after.

I've been in school a year and a half and I'm still not too sure what I want to do. The current thought though is to major in biology with a pre-vet emphasis and make an attempt at getting into vet school. If that doesn't work, I think I'd like to be a zookeeper and take classes online with Purdue University to get a vet tech degree. Either way, I think I'd like to someday work at Animal Kingdom. :)

I'm also really, really grown up. :D

I'm 37 and I am slowly, but surely finishing my bachelor's at a public university here in Virginia - I have stalkers (yikes) so I keep the name mum. I have about 24 classes to go. I plan to eventually make it to the College of William and Mary to attend law school or earn my MBA.

I've previously attended U of WA (go huskies!), Seattle U, and William and Mary for some courses. That is what happens when you change your major 4 times, get married and have kids (I have 4 with one on the way), move around a lot because of my hubby's lucrative career, and live too comfortably in the suburbs. lol

BTW my hubby lives and works in NY for now (he's a contract design engineer - a "jobshopper") and I stay put to finish school. We're strange that way, though, as we have lived this lifestyle since 1998.


Whoo-hoo! Glad I'm not the only "old-timer" here! :rotfl: I'm Carol, I'm 33 years old and I am currently finishing up my Liberal Arts Degree. Next fall, I'm transferring to UNT complete my Bachelors of Music Performance degree. I was in band in junior high and high school and I had a very intense band teacher. By the time I graduated high school, I was burned out on music and put it down for a long time (all of my twenties). Only in the last two years did I decide I really missed music and went back to school last year. Best decision I have ever made. :thumbsup2

I would LOVE to work for Disney one day! I am a lover of all things Disney, especially Goofy!

Hey everyone. I joined disboards just because of this college board. I am already a member of a different disney message board which I love, but they don't have something just for college students (I don't think are many- and I believe one of them is a member here).

I am 18 years old and I am psychology major, minoring in Cognitive Neuroscience (and I am cosidering a double major or minor in biology, anthropology ,or spanish). I am in my sophomore year at Temple University in Philadelphia- yes, our football team sucks but our academics are amazing.

I also have two part time jobs and a volunteer position at a local children's hospital doing play therapy, so I am pretty busy- luckily I can do my homework and studying at my one job- info desk at school. And any extra time I have is spent with my amazing friends. I want ot attend either medical school (to become a neurologist) or graduate school (to get my ph.d and do either research or clinical psych. in either developmental or cognitive psych).

Hey everyone!! :wave2: My name is Bethany and I am currently a Junior at David Lipscomb University in Nashville, TN (but I am really from Columbia, SC). My major is Elementary Education because I have always loved children and wanted to teach them. I have always been dead set on teaching Kindergarten until these past few years - I am now chaning those plans slightly because I want to move to Orlando and become a Cast Member (at least for a couple of years). I have looked into it, and I know that there are many opportunities for cast members to work with children, so that is my goal as of now. So I am just fighting to get through these last 2 years.

I applied to UCF (U. of Central Florida in Orlando) for Spring I hope to get in there and pursue a degree in Event/Hospitality Management.

Hi everyone! I just came across this board too for the first time a few days ago while looking into going to Disney College. My name is also Stephanie, but I go by Stephie mostly and I'm 23 (although I'll never be older than 21 in my mind!). I'm ending (finally) my community college experience, after having to take almost a year off for medical reasons. I want to go into entertainment and looking into going to one of the CSU's here in Cali to get an entertainment studies degree. I thought what better than to go to the best entertainment place in the world to get some real experience. I just can't decide when to do it and what I should and shouldn't do. I thought what a great place to look for some info then here with a ton of peeps that have done it! I've grown up disney going to epcot the year it opened just a few months old or so. I go here to DL though and know it like the back of my hand. Look forward to talking to everyone! :wave: I love Donald Duck! :donald: And my fav disney movie is the Little Mermaid!

Aloyha, everyone! I'm Samantha, a 20-year old junior at La Roche College in PA. I just transferred to La Roche from a community college, so I'm adjusting to life in a dorm. Verrrrrry interesting. I'm interested in doing the College Program. I interviewed last week, but I'm not sure how well it went. Ah well--if it went as badly as I think it did, I'll just have to apply again for fall! :teeth:

I'm a huge fan of Disney's Aladdin, including all three films and the TV series. My screenname refers to a character from the third Aladdin film, but since there are people in the Aladdin fandom who can't identify Sa'luk, I don't expect anyone else to. :rotfl: I'm also semi-obsessed with all 4 Lilo and Stitch films, and the TV series that goes with them. I've never been to a Disney park, but hopefully that will change with the CP!

My name is Brittany. I am currently a sophomore at the University of Vermont and my major is Wildlife and Fisheries Biology. I still haven't decided if I want to study wildlife or fisheries yet! I'm 19 years old, and when I'm not at school I live with my family in Columbus, Ohio. I'm going to apply for the Spring CP, and I'm very excited about it. I applied and was accepted last year for Fall '06, but unfortunately had to decline. So hopefully everything goes well and I will be in Disney next semester instead of at school here! :joker:

I have been to Disney five times and I am going again this summer. If I could I would go every year but now with college and all the loans and multiple books I do not have enough money or time to go every year.

I want to do the College Program sometime. I am not sure when I am able to do it because I would also like to be an International Resident Assisant here at school. Hey I can take a class for free if I do it and any free class here is excellent.

Just wanted to introduce myself and say hi.

I got accepted and my role is Operations, arriving Jan. 7th to check in on the 8th. Although some ppl I've come in contact with aren't thrilled about me doing this, I do have some strong support, and I'm just going to take that and run with it.

i've been around for a while but figured i should formally introduce myself. my name is christina. i'm from nyc, living at home and going to school at st johns university (i'm a freshman). i'm in their pharmacy program, which is a six year program, and because of it, there is no way i can miss a semester to go do disney's college program :sad1: but that's alright i guess, i'll manage to survive with a couple trips down there during my vacations :teeth:

i've been to disney about 7 times, starting when i was less than a year old! now, i'm basically a disney fanatic. my favorite character is the head cheese mickey mouse, and i make it a point to go visit 'the boss' every time i'm down at wdw. my favorite movie would be the great mouse detective, but i love the soundtracks to all the movies- half the magic of disney is in the music! my favorite park is MK.

i'm trying to plan a trip down to wdw for sometime in may, hopefully that will work out for me. and who knows? maybe i'll see some of you there :sunny:

Hi, I joined the forum ages ago but I've been very busy over the summer.
I'm starting a business called mycollegeincome . It's basically my wife and I using our marketing experience and the economies of scale to make some decent advertising income available to college students. I'm very curious about whether I'll get dissed here. I've been reading up on how people get angry when presented with a financial opportunity. This reaction is mostly based on fear. I think in some respects people in college are facing fear of failure on an almost daily basis. I've been there. All my best to everyone on here and good luck with college.

It seems like I'm just out of the average age too. The majority of the people I've seen are 18-21. And I'll only be 24 when I start in Jan! But I don't think it matters when you do it, just how you make it while you're there. If I don't get have a good audition I hope to get operations.

I just thought i would introduce myself too, i've been on the boards for a while now, and looked around the college board, but never posted anything in it yet!

Anyways, my name is Crissa and i am 20 years old from Minnesota. I attend a community college in Bloomington, MN and i am majoring in business marketing and hospitality management (after changing my mind a million times). I love traveling, planning, being organized and i have a huge love for Disney.

Im thinking about... no... im STRONGLY thinking about the CP for fall 2007 or spring 2008, i know it's a ways away, but i want to bump up my gpa and get some more classes under my bealt before i go down!

so yeah, that's pretty much me in a nutshell!

You're right. I also think that the fear comes from companies that claim that they can help students earn some extra cash, but require an investment too expensive for students to afford.

You're right. I also think that the fear comes from companies that claim that they can help students earn some extra cash, but require an investment too expensive for students to afford. We don't ask for any investment. After a little bit of setup work a student could have around $150 a month coming to them in passive income, it's not a get rich scheme, but it's decent spending money. Anyway, I'm not going to post any more about it, like I said people get angry.

Hey all! Iím Amy and Iím in my second year at St. Maryís University. Iím working towards a BA, doing a double major in English and Religious Studies. Iíve only been to WDW twice, but Iím hooked already. Iím interested in the CP, but I couldnít stay in Orlando for an entire winter just because I wouldnít get to ski at all. :p

Iíve loved Disney since I was a kid (who hasnít?) and when I finally got to go it was very surreal. I canít decide which park is my favourite, Epcot or the Magic Kingdom. I love both, but I think they are in major need of upgrading the Canadian pavilion.

Anyway, I think itís great thereís a college board on here. Hopefully Iíll be able to find some time to browse around instead of writing papers all the time!

I'm Suzi, 19, studying music at the University of Southampton, in the south of England, but originally from London.

I'm a big Disney nut (although that probably goes without saying, what with me posting on a board for college-age Disney fans. But I digress :rolleyes: ), particularly the animated films (I'm the only person I've ever met who cries EVERY TIME at the end of Beauty and the Beast :rolleyes: ). I've been to WDW 3 times, DLP a whole lot more, and I'm planning my first ever trip to DL for next March.

I'm a major film buff, and love just about any kind of music.

'Twould be nice to hear from everyone else here, find out who everyone is! :)


nice thing.... i love disneys!

Hello, everyone! I'm Sandra, and I am an older (not old) student as well. I'll be 30 in April. I'm attempting a BA in Communication to add some depth to my BBA in Marketing and Management. I have always admired Disney, and I still kick myself for not doing the CP when I was college the first time. But thank God for second chances!

I got accepted and my role is Operations, arriving Jan. 7th to check in on the 8th. Although some ppl I've come in contact with aren't thrilled about me doing this, I do have some strong support, and I'm just going to take that and run with it.

Hello to everyone and, who knows, maybe we could meet up sometime in January!
:cheer2: CONGRATS Sandra! Don't worry about a thing! I'm 26 and I will be arriving Jan. 12th for my PI in Strategic Pricing. Good luck with everything!

Well I'm 24 and will turn 25 while on my CP. It seems like I should be doing PI with my age. I think I'm going to be one of the oldest ones doing CP! I may try and pick up a PI instead of a second CP. I dunno. Depends on how I like it. I arrive jan 17th hope to see ya guys down there!

Yeah I was thinking about just extending but more and more I'm thinking about trying to get a PI. I might as well get everything I can out of my time down there!

Im jen. Just getting really adictied to disney. I guess my fave would be tinkerbell. I dont think ive ever seen all of peter pan but tink is so cute. I have wacthed dang near every disney movie due to the fact I am a carrer preschool caretaker (daycare). Im a little odd. I am rasing two class mascots, cowie(a stuffed cow) and a rabbit (stuffed) who is curently unnamed. Ummm what else to tell you? I love to belong to things. I collect police and fire stuff. I have a nice patch collection. This will be my first disney trip in march. Im 22, in college and working too hard. Favorie disney movie: Shrek or Beauty and the beast Least favorite: FOX AND THE HOUND. I hate that one, mostly because everytime the lady has to give up her fox I sob like a baby, no many how many times I see it. I guess this is beacuse I have cats. My family consists of: My mom, My best freind (known as Dear sister), Tabby (9 year old cat) dana(8 year old cat), Bosco (my captured stray going to be a year in march), bandit (my abused captured kitten, a year in april). Bandit is very happy to be living in a safe home now. My family also consists of: 3 mollies, 3 bottom feeeders, two koi, 4 snails and a hermit crab. Extended family would be: My Dsis's mom donna (a middle school teacher), and her two cats (sven and ole). Wow your bored by now I bet, well this is me. OH and my names Jen.

Shrek isn't a Disney movie.

(Sorry, but it's a major peeve of mine.)

Hello!

I'm Kelly and go to school near Dallas, TX. I'm 22 years old and graduated with my bachelors in May and graduate with my masters in teaching in May 2007. My family is taking me to Disney World to celebrate the last week in May and I couldn't be happier!! This will be my 7th time going and each time, I get more excited. I can't wait to literally hug Cinderella's Castle and take a million pictures! :wizard:

Btw, I cry at the end of Beauty and the Beast every time too. It's my all time favorite movie :)

Hi everyone!

I am Melissa and I have been on and off the DIS boards for as long as I can remember, but I forgot my password and everything from my old account krispykremewissa. Otherwise I am 19 and from Minnesota. I am a sophomore at MSU Mankato, majoring in either Biology or Recreation Parks and Leisure Services... I still need help with picking one of the two.

I have been to the WDW about 20 times and DL twice. I am EXTREMELY :yay: interested in the WDW CP and I have a ton of questions. I think I would like to go in Fall 07, probably advantage.

Feel free to IM me if you can help me, my info is in my profile!
